The History of The Sally

Built in 1895, The Sally (previously known as The Salutation Inn) was a Victorian Coaching Inn. Little is known about its history for the first part of the century but by the sixties it was owned by Whitbread and run by Henry Guardhouse and his wife, Betty. Known for miles around, ‘Henry’ is said to have been a true character and locals today still have a few tales to tell of his tenancy.

By the 80s the pub had been split into two sections with a ‘cocktail bar’ where children were not allowed – very different to today where we aim to create a welcoming atmosphere for everyone!
