The 'HORNS LODGE' is a traditional historic rural English public house, which has been in this location for about 200 years.
The inn was one of a string of coaching inns on the London to Brighton postal service route. A horn was carried on each coach which was sounded to herald the arrival of the post.
Hence the name , 'HORNS LODGE'.
