Popular pub near the old town quay and medieval river bridge and chapel. Named after the former local resident whose troops blew up the bridge during the civil war. The building was originally a cottage but became a pub in the 1840s. A well that once supplied water to a long closed pub brewery can be seen in the side bar. Recently bought by Wells & Co and features many regional and national beers. Lunchtime meals are freshly prepared using local ingredients with a changing specials board (evening snacks are to be introduced on Mon-Wed). Live music on Thursday evenings. A quiz is hosted on the first Tuesday of the month, except during the summer. The rear patio is a suntrap in the summer. Now under new management but there have been few noticeable changes.
