See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

Sited at the end of the lane, and looking very much like an old farmhouse with an added barn conversion. The rustic appearance is no accident – indeed when the pub was built in 1987 it was constructed to look like an old sawmill, complete with water wheel. Back then it was called the Old Mill and was badged as a Tetley pub. Then it had a good range of cask conditioned beers. It has changed hands several times and is now owned by Vintage Inns. It was considerably altered in the 1990s, with a much lower false ceiling and then further change took it to be a more food-orientated venue. Today it’s much more cosy and intimate with lots of separate areas furnished and decorated in a "modern traditional" style. Think more country cottage than working sawmill. There is extensive outdoor seating, including a recently renewed decking area alongside the river. It generally has three cask beers and a guest beer. Although very much food-focused, you can turn up if you want a meal without the necessity of booking, or you can you can just go there for a drink; the beer is well kept.
