This is a popular 17th century black and white pub in the heart of the village. There is a public bar to the left of entrance, but you have to go through the pub to get to it. The bar is on your left as you enter. It is not large and people accumulate round it even when busy. There is a fireplace here which is lit in winter and some bar stools. To the left of the bar is a window seat where you can read the provided papers at the weekend. There are a number of tables here, so a few groups can sit in front of the fire. There is a single pew seat and small round table facing the bar, but this is in line with the door and can be chilly when it is open at night. Up a single step Is another seating area, though this is usually decked out for eating – which seems to be the mainstay of this pub at weekends as it is very busy. If you want to eat you need to book well in advance. The beers on at the time were Hobson’s and a guest from Mayfield. They were all served well, and the prices were not too steep. The pub prides itself on serving local bottled cider, so check out the menu on the board by the bar. Access to the lounge bar is possible for the disabled, but wheelchairs would find it difficult. No other part is accessible. For the summer there is a large beer garden with children’s play area.
Food is served here both lunch and evening and is traditional with little choice for vegetarians. Prices are reasonable and it is all home made. Do check out the daily specials board.
Large car par to the rear.
