This name comes from the days when dyeing was carried out on the banks of the River Sherbourne some centuries ago. The pub is thought to be at least two hundred years old. In 1979 it was 'an unpretentious working man's local'. Live folk music was performed in the back room in 1982. In 1984 Chris Arnott acclaimed the "small garden, but a good example of what can be done outside an inner city pub with a bit of imagination. Fairy lights and pop music..........swings for the kids.....there's a barbecue offering hot dogs, beefburgers and chicken portions most nights". Sounds very attractive.
