The Wrestlers has stood on it’s present site since 1547 and the present owners have run this fine hostelry since 1997. Its original fireplace, wooden furniture and stained glass windows together with a relaxed atmosphere and friendly locals combine to create a traditional pub full of old world charm.
It goes without saying that some of the best people in the world are bar staff, and our staff are always more than ready to share a story or two. You’ll certainly never be alone at the wrestlers.
Put all this together with fantastic home-made food from our in-house chefs and a great variety of well kept Real Ales, Ciders and locally brewed spirits and we’re sure you’ll have a memorable visit, time and time again.
Cheers from us all at The Wrestlers and we look forward to seeing you in the near future.

SwearingOn The Horns
Swearing on the Horns is a farcical oath that was traditionally given to visitors at various pubs in the London suburb of Highgate during the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries. The oath consists of a series of statements read by a clerk, confirming one’s dedication to merriment and debauchery; those being sworn in would agree to each statement, kiss or salute a set of horns , and be entered in a logbook for posterity. The Wrestlers is a regular spot, with some horns and a plaque of the oath on the wall – should the urge to swear ever come over you to join us. Please get in touch to find out when the next one will take place.
