An ancient stone-built pub in the middle of the village, it dates back to 1168 and was originally built to house masons building the church. The extensive inglenook contains rungs leading to a hideaway. Patronised by Cromwells officers after the nearby Battle of Edgehill. Previously the pub was a Hook Norton pub, but now free of tie. Completely refurbished and re-opened in Sept 2017. Food is served all sessions except Monday and Tuesday. Outdoor drinking area.
