Popular town-centre pub set back from the busy main shopping street, first licensed in 1754 (recent testing has dated the building to 1730). Although modernised in recent years, with a single L-shaped bar area, old beams have been retained in the back lounge. Good value bar meals are served every lunchtime and in the evening except Saturday and Sunday. Live music Saturday and Sunday evenings. Quiz night on Thursday. An impressive selection of gin, rum and whisky. The large, secluded garden at the rear has a pond.
