The Porch House – History

The Porch House is thought to be Britain’s oldest pub, built in 947 AD with 16th century stone added to the original Saxon wood structure. Part of the building was once a hospice, and in the 18th century it was named The Eagle and Child when it was rumoured to be a cockfighting venue.

It became a hotel as well as a pub in the 1970s, and is now one of the finest inns in the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
