Attractive and lively village hostelry, originally three cottages but converted into a pub in the 1830s. The interior features a single large L-shaped room, where the low beamed ceiling in the older part contrasts with a high ceiling, with exposed rafters, in the airy, more recently modified section. Open mic night 2nd & 4th Wednesdays of month (except December); occasional live music and quiz nights (see Facebook page for latest information). Trent & Mersey Canal runs along edge of village, about 300yds distant. National Memorial Arboretum is 1 mile to east.
