Totally refurbished in 2013 - and the name shortened from The Running Horse - the atmosphere is always of a busy pub serving good, affordable food and drink throughout the day. In summer, the garden and play area at The Runner is ideal for families or just those who want to enjoy a pint in the open air. There has probably been an inn on the site of The Runner since early in the 18th century, but the current building is relatively young - only 110 years old! In 1825, a John Garlick built a pub here and called it The Royal Oak but the name was shortlived and only a year later it was re-christened The Running Horse.
