Hume Arms

Copyright Richard Croft and licensed for reuse under this Creative Commons Licence

The Hume Arms was situated on Main Street. This pub has been in use since at least the early 19th century. The earliest record of the pub is from 1818, when it was then called the Talbott Inn. The original building is a two storey, L-shaped structure with a steeply pitched roof. This layout is visible on the 1821 Hume estate map of the area. By 1836, it had ben renamed the Hume Arms, in recognition of the family who had acquired the manor in the 18th century. At that point, the building was already considered to be quite old, and Mary Saunders stated 'the inn is a rather large building, and evidently of ancient erection'. There is also a local tradition that the inn was formerly a manor house for Sir Abraham Hume. This pub closed in 2008, reopening later that same year.
Now closed again.
