29/08/23 - reopened positively after a period of closure stretching back to August 2020 when the future of the pub looked to be in serious doubt. Its past has been one of closing and opening so we hope that stability has now returned. For example it was under new management from March 2018. It previously reopened after a brief period of closure in 2013 again under new management.

A very recent visitor commented as follows, "I think this is a really fine pub. different yet complementary to the Wenlock around the corner. Food served. interesting wine list. cocktails. 14 keg lines. 3 cask. 2 in use (London Pride, Dark Star - excellent condition)."

We believe it has remained pretty much as it was with an array of large tables and candles. The outside fabric of the pub, a nice entrance way and etched windows with the pub's name remain from a previous refurbishment which saw the bar shift position and a large portrait of William IV acquired although unsure if this still remains. Upstairs is a larger room (with the original pub shutters found in a local second-hand shop!). There is also a smaller private dining room.
