Chestnut Tree1 Mill Road
Originally a thatched building which burned down in the 1870s, the pub was rebuilt in this impressive Victorian style. More recently it has been extended to become the roomy pub that is it today. The public bar to the left has dark wood furniture with red upholstery, and a pool table. The handpumps for the four real ales are this side. The pub was acquired by the present owners from Greene King in 2012, they regularly serve Greene King IPA and three changing guest beers mainly from micros, including local suppliers. The lounge is mainly set out for dining, but also has a bar with a helpful blackboard to show the real ales available. One cider is always available, going up to 2 or 3 in the summer. The pub hosts darts, pool and pétanque teams. Other items of interest include the historic “Off Sales’ door with a serving hatch in the entrance hall, and the small lending library behind the saloon bar.
