A National Inventory time-warp pub, known locally as Elsie's (Elsie is, of course, the proprietor who was born here in 1924 and is still running the place 85 years later). If Elsie is behind the bar, she's a good conversationalist and will tell you all about the Canadian soldiers who frequented the place during the war.

The three ancient handpumps offer just one beer - Adnams - which was in reasonable condition. A notice outside the door proudly states that there's no lager - just ale, a few spirits and some soft drinks. There's also (as I noticed on another sign) NO children's room and NO ice!

Keep an eye out for the ancient darts scoring machine. There's a music session once a month which looks like good fun - we were leaving just as Les Onions (AKA Count Vernon Dudley Bohay-Nowell from the Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band) appeared for that evening's gig.

Now, if we gloss over some of the 'ahh' factor, there's one big fault with the place. And that's the need for a thorough coat of paint and quite a bit of renovation; the gents in particular were most uninviting.

Overall, worth a visit for the heritage value (which applies equally to the landlady as well as the pub!) but there needs to be a bit of work done to make it a s good as it should be. I'd find it hard to stay beyond a pint of curiosity value, really.
