Well described by Soupy, below, this 16th Century coaching inn is very inviting as you pass by, with its cobbles leading to the carpark, small garden and Tudor red-brick charm. The atmosphere inside is a comfortable conviviality, the staff being less-then-hostile, while the locals are a decent bunch. The gaming machines were unobtrusive, the Wifi worked, the banter was civilised. Ales on were Doombar, Old Golden Hen, Outlander, Golden Glow and Bombardier. A pretty decent pub, somewhere to enjoy a few beers and a definite place to visit when in the town.

The exterior shows a brick and timber building in mock-Tudor style, dating from the last century, built on the site of a former inn, so it is claimed. The pub has a beer patio area, where a concrete bridge runs over a Penk tribuary (or canal feeder). I sat here in the sun, in the quiet and have to say, loved it. The service was friendly.

The interior has two rooms. The bar has TV, where the regualrs and the racing channel win the day. The lounge has a great fireplace as its focal point, with old pictures of Penkridge as memorabilia and relaxing and not obtrusive music. The rooms were a little twee, but then they sell the place on the historic theme and i have seen it done far worse. All was clean that i saw.

The beer was the usual stuff, with handpull Everard's Tiger, Old Spekky and Banks's bitter. The Banks's MILD was electronic cask and tasted great.

I enjoyed this place, but then a lot of places in Penkridge are good to very good pubs
