Clinton Arms

Picture source: Darkstar

The Clinton Arms was situated at 43 Market Place. This pub is now in retail use. Previously known as The Talbot, The Cardinals House and The Kingston Arms, it was first called The Clinton Arms in 1823.
From The Good Pub Guide 1983:
The smoothly modernised bar of this Georgian inn is plushly furnished and restful with piped music, old coaching prints, the usual range of pub food, Home Bitter and Mild on electric pump, dominoes and a fruit machine. Theres a separate restaurant. Before its stylish coaching era rebuilding - and its change of name from The Talbot - this was one base for John Nevison's gang of highway robbers. He was known as Swift Nicks from his speed on horseback, and in 1676, in the impossibly short time of a single day, rode from London to York, 'proving' that he couldn't have been in London to have done the robbery he was accused of there.
