Previously the village lock-up, this 18th-century stone building is now a thriving club that hosts community events, including quoits. There are two downstairs rooms - one with pool and darts, the other with a cosy fire in the fine old fireplace - and a meeting room upstairs. The single handpump features an ever-changing guest beer, often sourced locally. Guests including CAMRA members are welcome - if in the area you must experience this gem. Opening hours may vary.
