An attractive solid-looking brick, flint and tile building with some late gothic flourishes in the form of a circular turret room with conical roof and weather vane. Although there is no longer a separate public bar, darts is still played in the same area, while diners are well catered for throughout the day and evening (food served 12-10 (9 Sunday), plus breakfast from 10am until midday on Saturday and Sunday). The guest beers change regularly and there is real cider in summer. There are also regular promotions (half-price food on Monday, curry night on Wednesday) and events (poker and quiz nights, terrace barbecue on summer Sundays). The village only got its pub in the early 1900s when it was built as an annexe to the local manor house. Be warned: it is a long uphill walk from Woodmansterne station! Outside is a large and pleasant garden with a sandpit for the kids to play in. Live music is played one Friday a month.
