This pub is one in the list of my "Project 2014."

As such I haven't found a picture of the pub, and have little other information. Local knowledge, further pictures, and licensee information would be appreciated.

I will be adding the historical information when I find or are sent it, but this project is a very big one, and I do not know when or where the information will come from.

All emails are answered.
