Built in 1826 as a private venture together with adjacent cottages and stabling but soon acquired by Jude Hanbury. Later subsumed by Whitbread as evidenced by the etched bay windows and the brickwork that is now covered by painted pebbledash. Internal steps down provide access to the toilets and the large enclosed garden with a covered al fresco eating area and a play area for children. A woodburning stove provides enormous heat in the bar during the winter. The restaurant is separate from the bar, though the substantial meals may be taken in either. Booking advisable for Sunday carvery.
