Attractive two bar pub with splendid views of the Stour estuary which was popular with local ramblers.
There were many exposed beams and woodwork in both bars especially the split level lounge/restaurant area which also had low ceilings and led into the separate conservatory area. Some interesting local pictures could also be seen.
Closed since 2009, this pub was purchased in November 2010 and was allegedly re-opening when renovation work was completed, with the addition of a café and art gallery. For some years the place was obviously being looked-after, but when visited in August 2014 the overgrown weeds show that this is no longer the case. It appears this pub will probably never reopen.
