Pub just inside the County boundary, originally dating from the 18th century. The current building is actually 'new', as the pub was completely destroyed by fire in September 2002, having in turn been previously rebuilt in 1910 following an earlier fire. Unusually Greene King rebuilt the pub from scratch and it is now branded as a Hungry Horse outlet, serving the diverse needs of its local community in the nearby housing estates.The pub itself is huge. Built in an open plan style and decorated red and black. There is a games area, with pool, darts and a pinball machine and an area of relaxed high back seating on one side of the bar, with areas more focused on dining and families on the other. TVs are dispersed throughout and will often be showing different sporting events, children's TV and news at the same time. TVs are also provided in the more discreet booths dotted around the sides of the pub. Quiz night is Thursday and there is a patio area outside the main entrance with an outside area shaded by trees at the rear of the pub.Food is from a standard menu, with various offers throughout the week. A more unusual retail opportunity is a pick and grab toy machine complimented with a baby feeding station.
