The pub’s sign shows the arms of the Carew Family 3 lions which was the original name.
THE BEGINNING OF THE CAREW ARMS
Originally known as The Three Lions, the pub owes its name and signboard to the Carew family who became lords of the manor in the reign of Queen Elizabeth I. The first Carew to become lord of the manor was Thomas. His great uncle, Vice Admiral George Carew, was captaining the Mary Rose when she sank in Portsmouth harbour during the reign of Henry VIII. The Inn still retains much of it rural charm.
Today, our summers are often spent with Jamie and Julie cooking up a storm as usual with fresh fish and chips on Friday nights, and barbecuing throughout the weekend. In Winter we cosy up, light the log fire in our front bar and enjoy comforting, home-made food and a glass of mulled cider in our tranquil, rural village.
