This grade II listed building was originally the kitchen and dining area for the adjacent bishop's palace, Buckden Towers, once the location of the imprisonment of Henry VIII's first wife, Catherine of Aragon. It is a small, friendly hotel situated in the heart of the village. The lounge has a large open fire and retains the impressive original carved beam ceiling. The bar and lounge area are popular meeting places for locals and visitors.
