    Saw this place on a thread from @ThisWay and had to pay it a visit, the original part of the building is barely still standing. Most of it damage from the 2011 fire that devastated a large section of the ground floor and most of the top floor, the bar is still in pretty good condition.

    The pub was constructed in the late 1800's and has seen several building projects over it's life, and has also been known as the Potters lodge. Then in 2009 the pub was bought by a local farmer and his son who refurbished the pub and reverted it back to the original name, the venue then slowly increased in popularity with many nights being fully booked. Then on the 27th June 2011 the pub was closed the same as every Monday night and a local resident spotted smoke coming from the roof of the pub. Fire crews later blamed arsonists as they had found evidence that multiple fires had been set around the property, and forced entry at the rear of the kitchen area.

    The pub has been closed ever since.

    Cool, but also sad that someone destroyed this farmers pub.

    Cool shots - I'm going to have to go back and get one from the corner [2], and why didn't I take any from behind the bar?? I didn't notice those business cards either. :thumb

    Haha, when you've spent as much time behind and in front of a bar as me you can't resist.
