Records for this largely timber-framed
building go back to 1535, but some roof
trusses are thought to be Saxon. It
could originally have been an inn (note
the swan with two necks above the front
door) and may have been a resting place
on a drovers' route from Wales to
London. It became in turn a forge, a
petrol filling station, and a restaurant
before becoming a pub again. A small bar
serves two carpeted areas - one with
comfortable armchairs and TV for sport,
the other for eating. Home-cooked food
is available lunchtimes and evenings and
all day at weekends. There is an outdoor
patio with heated cover for smokers, A
dartboard has been restored, and weekly
pub lotteries are an innovation.
