One of the oldest pubs in Guildford, constructed in the late 16th century in the heart of the town close to the Castle. Inside, there is a broadly open plan layout but with a few nooks and crannies. As befitting a building of its ages there are low ceilings, stone flagged floors, brick walls and exposed oak beams. Pictures of old Guildford adorn the walls and to the left of the main entrance is a full suit of armour. To the rear is a patio area and terrace on several levels which is popular all year round with large umbrellas and heaters that provides a great spot for an alfresco pint. A popular quiz is held on a Monday. Various food offers are available through the week including pizzas on Tuesday, burgers on Wednesday and fish on Friday. The pub features heavily on tours of haunted Guildford. Acquired by Shepherd Neame in June 2016.
