See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
Formerly a coaching inn, this large, multi-roomed historic hotel is thought to be at least 900 years old, and still has the famous (and rare) gallows sign that traverses the road. Described by Daniel Defoe as "one of the greatest inns in England"; other famous visitors have included Charles I and William III. Panelled cosy front bar with oak beams and a real fire. Period fixtures and fittings are in keeping with the historical feel of the establishment. Three real ales, usually from Adnams and Grainstore.
