The Open Arms has re-opened in April 2016 under the new name of The Bear & Blacksmith after a complete refurbishment including a brand new kitchen. The new name relates to a time when the last dancing bear was kept in the village, when it died its paws were on show in the local blacksmith's forge. A multi-award winning pub for its food. Otter Brewery's Ale, Amber or Bright also often appear.;
