Set in the delightful village of Ley Hill, this beautiful 16th-century pub was once the place where condemned prisoners would drink a ‘last and final ale’ on the way to the nearby gallows. During World War II, Glen Miller and Clark Gable cycled here for a pint from the Air Force base at Bovingdon. These days, it is a free house offering a warm welcome, real ales and good food, plus a large inglenook fireplace and original beams. Pan-fried fillet of sea bass; steak and kidney pie; or chicken and chorizo tagliatelle are typical choices. Look out for the summer beer festival in August.
