This late Tudor building and old coaching Inn was originally called The Saracens Head and dates back to around 1580.The pub has original oak beams and log fire with a smart dining area just left of the bar.There was 4 cask beers to choose from with if needed an extensive food menu.
The pub's sign is very interesting with a different design on each side.On one side is a crest which I presume is the Lech coat of Arms,while on the reverse is a portrait of a black boy.Apparently a wandering artist was requested to paint a Saracens head for the sign,but unsure what that was painted a young black boy,so for a period of time was called The Black Boy or the Blackamoor's Head.
The pub also offers accommodation.
