Taking its name from a boomerang-shaped tree branch, The Crooked Billet is the oldest pub on the High Street, and the only one that’s not named after a shipping vessel. Our 16th century tavern is a grade 2 listed building, which boasts historic seafaring connections. It’s existence spans more than 160 years, from the early 1850s, when the Billet Club was formed to help sick fishermen

The Mitre is a pub with a long and venerable history, standing on the site of two former inns — the Blackmoor's Head and The Cock and Magpie. The first inn took its name from Robert Blackmoor, a medieval chantry priest. The coming of the railway took away much of the river trade upon which both inns depended to the point whereby 1874 the Cock & Magpie was the only remaining pub.
