This is an ongoing project so contributions, corrections or additions to this archive, especially anecdotes, photos and media are most welcome. Feel free to contact us for a pint and a chat anytime.

The Haunch of Venison

This is a sign normally found near a hunting forest. Venison is now thought of exclusively as deer-meat, but the word derived from Latin venari, ' to hunt ', and was formerly applied to the flesh of any animal, boar, hare etc., which had been killed in the chase.

This pub is thought to date to before 1800.
Known Licensees are;
1822 - 1823 T. Parkes
