See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

In the former village primary school building (hence the name), this pub styles itself as a 'bar and kitchen'. The left-hand room houses the main bar area, which is where the high tables, bar stools and wall ledges lend themselves to the drinking section of the clientele. A staircase at one end leads up to a mezzanine lounge area for relaxing on well-upholstered sofas or with space to eat at a few dining tables. Three steel handpulls dispense the beer. The right-hand part of the old building contains a separate restaurant area, food being described as back-to-basics and accessible; ingredients are locaaly sourced. Live evening entertainment includes an acoustic jam session Thursdays, karaoke Fridays and occasional live bands on Saturdays. The bus stops by the school wall.
