See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

A warm and welcoming country inn with a traditional feel. It has a comfortable lounge and a small 'Snug' bar. It's popular with drinkers and diners, and offers a good choice of beers and wide range of food. The management is also proud of its large selection of gins.

The building is Grade II-listed and dates from the early 18th century and once comprised a number of buildings. It is said that some of the building material came from the former Gilbertine priory at nearby Sempringham where Gwenllian of Wales, the only child of Llwelyn,the last native Prince of Wales, was confined there as a child by Edward 1, who saw her as a threat to his line, until her death aged 54 in 1337. A monument to her of Welsh slate stands on the priory site.
