The early licensees it appears were Blacksmiths, so this is fair to suggest the reason why the name of the pub was chosen.

The pub closed around September 2013 and is undergoing alterations, as to what into, no information is known at present.

Latest information tells me in 2015 tells me it's going to be another private residence.

As time allows and I find or are sent further information or pictures regarding this pub I will be adding further information to this page. I am certainly interested in any old photographs you may have, or information regarding licensees names and years of service.

If anything is incorrect on these pages, please let me know. Your help is appreciated.
