PS Did you know?
Even though the building dates back to the 1500s, the original features of the pub are now concealed within a mock Tudor façade which was erected in 1907 as part of a Victorian redevelopment of the site that saw the introduction of a brewery on the premises. The brewing equipment and machinery remains housed in the outbuildings still seen today.
