Hosted Dick Turpin when he stole Black Bess.
Good selection of 4 ales. Stopped in for lunch at 2.30, but only served the dinner menu, even though website advertises light snacks.

Likely on the site of older foundations, the pub possibly dates to the 17th century and is certainly in that style. Datached, with a beer garden, the pub has the traditional white and beam exterior. Amazingly, it isn't in the GBG 2010, despite holding annual beer festivals.

The interior has two rooms in general; the bar and lounge. The lounge is in fact set up as the restuarant and is in green, peachy colour and brick, with supporting and ceiling beams. The bar, which has a TV (watched a bit of the World Cup) has a wood floor and is in red, peach and wood panel, with brick fireplace. There are masses of brass ephemera and other electic stuff, with lots of photos and prints on the walls. Service was fine and it was busy enough, with diners of a more mature outlook at my visit. There was quiet general background music.

Beer; tap stuff, with Pedigree, Black Sheep, Bombardier, Abbots and an excellent Timothy Taylor Landlord on handpull.

A delight to visit, a place that can successfully combine food and a bar. A must do in my opinion.

Tidy old pub with good food and Guest ales chosen by the locals! Dick Turpin reputedly stayed the night after he stole Black Bess from a local horse fair. Worth a visit in September during the local historical horn dance.
