See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
Kingston's oldest pub, originally a 17th-century coaching house. The old 'snug' bar has sadly recently been knocked through to become part of the split level main bar, but the fireplace has been retained. Note the mews and interesting glasswork. Guest beers change on a regular basis, with some from Greene King and others from other breweries including local ones. Food is available all days until 10pm and includes traditional Sunday roasts. Upstairs rooms are available to hire for functions. Live sports shown. The pub was once visited by the author Jerome K Jerome, who left an inscription on an upstairs window. The internal staircase and high 'rose' ceiling are both 17th-century and are Grade II* listed - these are not in the public area but can be viewed on request. Attractive enclosed patio garden area to rear.
