See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
True village (free of tie) pub, the bare-floored drinking area contrasting with a wellappointed restaurant. A wonderful garden and a popular Sunday lunchtime venue. This is a fine old stone building with a lot of ironstone in its construction, the front part is Victorian and much of the original features are still in use today. It is the centre of life for the village. The Nutbourne WI met in the 'clubroom'from 1953 -1968 and today villagers go there to vote, collect their papers and it hosts many of the village activities. The garden is traditional and has a fine example of a listed outside privy. It is still a "proper pub" and retrains a distinct rural appeal. In the the 1970s farmer Clive Allen was noted for taking his prize black steers to the bar for their daily pint!
