The two pubs here are at the opposite end of the village to the football club (which itself has good bottled beers on offer), but both are worth a visit and you can easily get the bus back up for the game.

The Anchor is a large, busy, family-and-food oriented pub with a lovely view of the river from the garden, and is good on the beer front too – usually Crouch Vale plus guests. In contrasting style, across the road and up a short lane you’ll find the Smugglers Den, a characterful down-to-earth local with a friendly welcome and Doom Bar on tap plus one or two others, maybe including house beer SX Smugglers from the Hope Brewery. 10% discount for CAMRA members; gentlemen will be amused by the Rolling Stones urinals!
