It's only just off the main bus route to Emmer Green, but many people don't know this pub is here. The clientele are mostly locals but it's also attractive to visitors. There's a good parking area, a large garden and a separate function room with one of the few remaining skittle alleys in the area. The guest beer changes every two weeks.
