Built in the 1860s, this double-fronted terrace pub was the Truman's Brewery tap until the brewery closed in 1971 (see mirror and pictures in public bar). Various owners followed until it was bought by the Burton Bridge Brewery in 1996.

Inside, a central bar counter serves two rooms, each featuring wood partitions topped with leaded stained glass, the left-hand room (lounge) having a raised seating area. There is also a small snug to the rear, featuring a charity book stall, some unusual barrel seats and submarine photographs/memorabilia. (The local branch of the Submariners Association meets here alternate Fridays.) Available beers are listed on a board. The pub is known locally for its range of English fruit wines.

Limited home-cooked menu Thursday to Saturday, plus traditional roast dinner on Sunday.
