Stay with us

The original building, that is now the Pike & Eel pub-restaurant-hotel was built in 1608. You can still see the priest’s hole, in the private dining room, where the Catholic priests escaped underground to avoid persecution. Until the mid-1999s the original building was owned by the Bygraves family. John Stafferton, the son-in-law of the Mr Bygraves, ran the pub and eventually bought out his brother-in-law at the end of the 1980s. Under his care the restaurant was built and the Pike & Eel became known for offering food as well as a place to relax and enjoy a pint.
