The Falcon Withernwick

The Falcon is a special place, it has long been at the heart of our village and an essential part of our community. The Falcon if over 100 years old Even older pehaps, it was originally three cottage, at that time the village pub was the Old Gate on High Street. Sometime around 1870, the three cottages were converted into The Falcon, the Old Gate had shut by this time, to anyone's knowledge the village never has had two or more pubs.
