16th century free-house at the northern end of this rural village which was formerly a large mining community. There is evidence that a pub existed on this site during the 14th century with its important position next to a bridleway. The traditional bar at the front of the premises has faced brickwork walls and a quarry-tiled floor. The room is dominated by a pool table. Via a corridor the large lounge area at the rear is part carpeted and part timber floor boarded. This comfortable room has a wood burning stove. Witty conversation and banter is a common feature amongst the locals who make strangers welcome. Down steps from the lounge is large conservatory with beautiful views. This room can be hired for private functions.
