The Three Cranes, standing just to the left of the Church entrance, was built in the early 1700s. It is famous for its Sunday lunches.
The village butchers is to the left of the pub.
The building has been listed as Grade II since 1952.
The Three Cranes was known as ‘The Chequers’ until at least 1847.
