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

A friendly village pub that is at the hub of the local community. Used by many groups and associations as well as regulars and visiting customers. It also hosts the village Post Office. The pub changed hands in Nov 16 and is now operated by John and Louise Smith who have lived in the local area for 10 years.You will always be assured of a warm welcome.The village and the pub have connections with the BBC's long-running radio programme 'The Archers'. Godfrey Baseley, a radio producer, visited Rippingale in 1947 to make an agricultural programme when in met local farmers. A few years later he went on to create 'The Archers' and used the same pub name for his fictional Ambridge pub. Two of the local farmers, a father and son, are thought to have been the inspiration for the characters Dan and Phil Archer.
