Parts of this picturesque whitewashed stone inn were originally the three cottages erected in 1146 to house the monks building the adjacent church of St Mary the Virgin. During subsequent centuries the tunnels between these cottages the church and priory (now a farmhouse) were created to afford protection against marauding foreign invaders. The present building became a licensed inn in 1550 and it was used by James II's sheriffs during the latter half of the seventeenth century to try supporters of the Duke of Monmouth
