About the Pub

Red-brick pub, built in the early 1800s and Grade II listed.

The pub offers the full range of the adjacent Flower Pots Brewery's beers on gravity behind the two bars - take-away sales are available. The two-room public bar boasts a glass-covered well in the floor and large fireplace. The lounge bar is smaller, with two adjoining rooms, and more cosy. Children are welcome in the bars until 7pm (if well-behaved and accompanied by an adult). The pub is dog-friendly.

Good home-cooked food is available daily except Sunday evenings. Wednesday evening is Curry Night where authentic Punjabi cuisine is served, created by a visiting local Punjabi specialist.

At the rear an extension is currently being built (March 2021), which will consist of a glass walkway leading to a Hampshire style barn. Along the walkway is a second bar that opens out to the pub's garden, which has many benches that can be enjoyed in good weather.

There are many good walks nearby and the Watercress Line steam railway is three miles away.

The pub was transferred to new local owners on 6th December 2019 and now opens all day Friday to Sunday and bank holiday Mondays.
