Long standing guide entry, this grade II listed weather-boarded free house has won many local CAMRA awards. As well as their three regular ales, there is usually one from Cotleigh along with three from interesting breweries. It holds two beer festivals a year making use of the attractive patio style garden, normally in May and October. Live football matches are occasionally shown on the large screen television. The wood burning stove complements the d├ęcor perfectly.
