The Waterdine building is a simple 16th century Drovers inn with original timber floors and many original leaded windows, the public rooms are quite small comprising of;- a lounge with an original stone floor, inglenook fireplace with a wood burner, exposed beams and expose original wattle in the wall of the bar, There are two steps down into the lounge and one step up into the bar with its ancient elm floor, toilets are in their own separate block adjoining the lounge.
The Waterdine is set in mature gardens, which during the summer make a wonderful place to sit with your pre-dinner drinks whilst you choose you dinner from our menu.
The Waterdine garden is a haven for many of Britain’s songbirds, too many to mention individually, we are also blessed with many birds of prey, from the hovering Red Kites the soaring Buzzards to the swooping hawks. Times spent sitting in the gardens are never without interest, and on occasion complete drama. Such was the case recently when suddenly a hawk swooped on a sparrow; it took the bird, but fortunately, for the sparrow, it was moving too fast and collided with one of the larger shrubs. In the ensuing pandemonium with the dogs rushing over to see what all the commotion was about the sparrow managed to make good its escape and the hawk somewhat ruffled shot out of the shrub and made its undignified exit from the scene.
