The Three Fyshes is in Bridge Street and is one of the first buildings you see as you enter the village from the West.

The pub bears the date 1624 - when beer was first served here.

On the right are two pictures of the inside - the bottom photo was taken June 2010.  The top illustration is probably from the 1960s.

The Fyshes was built in 1487 and is believed to have been owned by the Mordaunt family.

For many years people came from miles around to watch the famous outdoor boxing matches held here.
