An attractive village beside the River Trent, Alrewas dates back many hundreds of years and still retains a historic charm with its half-timbered thatched cottages that line Main Street, the old mill at the North of the Village and its 12th Century church. Situated within the National Forest, much of Alrewas is designated conservation area. The Trent and Mersey canal (bridge 48) runs through the village where locks and bridges evoke the atmosphere of the canal's heyday. In 2004 Alrewas won the district title of the Best Kept Village Competition and in 2005 was chosen to represent Staffordshire in the Village of the Year Competition There are a great number of community groups within the village that provide clubs and activities for all ages many of which use the pub. The locale is close to affluent Market Towns & Villages such as Litchfield, Wychnor, Barton under Needwood, Fradley, Kings Bromley, Yoxall, Burton upon Trent and attractions such as The National Memorial Arboretum, National Football academy, Barton Marina. ALREWAS is within the National Forest which attracts 7.5million visitors a year spending £314.7 million with local business’s. The pub sits on Main Street and has a bus stop to its front.
