The building dates back to the 1600's and certainly looks it. This is a one room pub, with seating either side of the entrance. The bar is positioned on the back left hand side. This room had low beamed ceilings and the floor was carpeted, apart from the area around the bar, which had modern looking grey tiles. The big let down for such an historic pub was the two gaming machines, propped up either side of an original timber upright beam opposite the bar and the crap choice of music blaring down my ears. Six pumps with five on, two from Beartown and two guest. We went for the Beartown Lit, which was ok, but didn't warrant a second. Large beer garden out the back, which was handy to escape from Katy Perry being played.

The interior does not quite live up to the nice black and white frontage on the High Street, but it is pleasant enough. Outside there is a considerable amount of decking to the rear. Three ales on: I also tried the Kodiak Gold which was exceptional.

A good pub with some cask ales
If you're driving or not drinking steer well clear as you're gonna get ripped off good style. But if you are out for a sesh then its ok.

This was a really nice looking pub from the outside and it is also nice inside.
I had a drink of Beartown Kodiak Gold and this was a very nice drink the other beers were Bombadier and GK Abbot.
