Features on Camra's National Inventory of Historic Pub Interiors. The pub was run for 74 years by Florence (Flossie) who died at the age of 94 years 11 months in 2009. The pub had restricted opening times due to Flossie's grand age and now is open on a regular basis. It was interesting to see the two front parlours, preserved from Flossie's time with the original furniture and wallpapered walls.
The rear of the pub now opens out into a large extension and bar area, which was once the ground floor cellar area. There is also a good size garden with a collection of various wildfowl roaming around.
We found this to be a warm and welcoming pub, four hand pumps, including one cider. We went for the Big Nevs Nelson Mandela and Hobson's Best, both were in good shape.

I must confess to being somewhat agnostic about this house.I really wanted to enjoy it-quiet rustic pubs are my idea of heaven, and the front rooms, parlour and kitchen are just that.equally, the new conservatory style servery cum bar to the rear is a fine village pub. Unfortunately, they don't really gel for me.
We sat in the parlour with the wonderful tiled floor, and enjoyed our stew and beer-very well kept Hobsons Best and Ludlow Boiling Well. A few drinkers in the airy bar out back on an October Tuesday lunchtime. A warm welcome from the gent behind the bar, who's beer memory went back further than mine.
A gem, perhaps if busier it would have shone.

Well worth checking out. Its like going to a museum, where you can have a pint and a meal :-)

Front area is exactly as it was - a parlour pub in someones house. A nice extension on the back and outside seating area. Great pint of Three Tuns and a really nice lunch
