The pub dates back to the 16th Century and was reputed to be the hunting lodge for King Henry VIII. It has laid empty for the past 10 years.

"Ok folks – it’s benefit time again.
We’ve spent all the money we raised last year on leaflets, website hosting and setting up a trust to attempt a bid for the pub, so we’ve organised another exciting benefit gig.
The superb (and generous and supportive) songwriter John Ellis has agreed to play for us again, as have superb jazz duo Jeff Green(Stephane Grapelli & Nigel Kennedy) & Mike Edmonds and brilliant local singer/songwriter Chris Tymkow. We’re still finalising the other elements of the evening but we know you’ll love it.
The Second Save The Old Spotted Dog Benefit will take place at The Red House (St Anthony’s Catholic Club) from 8pm on Friday November 29th.
Tickets are on sale now at £8 (any remaining tickets will be sold on the night at £10), which is an absolute bargain! Click the ‘add to cart’ button on your left and follow the instructions to be sure of your tickets. (we sold out very quickly last year so – in the words of Fred Pontin – book early!)
Just a note – the email receipt you get from PayPal will be your ticket. Please print a copy off to bring on the night".
