At the base of the hill, opposite the "Bull", this offered ale and cider from 1830. One of two cottages was converted to provide that facility and your host was Thomas Gould. From 1837, the Victoria Tea Gardens were also part of the attractions. This is another of our locals which was reputed to have been part of the smuggling chain. Lundy House nearby, with large cellars, also had that reputation after 1820.

 

The alehouse ended in 1845 when the property was enlarged to provide a rectory for St. Andrew's church. Too late to look now, for approval was given in November 1972 for the demolition and rebuilding of the rectory.
