The building originates from the 17th Century; the legend Dick Turpin has origin in the premises as he was allegedly arrested from here before being hung. 

We serve food between 4-9 weekdays, 12-9 Saturday and Sunday 12-4. Our menu is based and sourced from local suppliers and includes a varied range of traditonal pub meals and classics with a twist. 

The bar is fully stocked with a varied selection of premium and standard brand alcoholic and non alcoholic beverages including tradtional cask ales, wines and spirits- including a large variety of Gins!

We host a Popular Quiz every Thursday night with free food and prizes. 

Outside, we have a sun drenched, fully furnished beer terrace with water feature and pond; a perfect place to relax with friends.
