This is a 16th Century Inn whose name originates from the emblem of Edward III’s wife, Queen Philippa. Incorporated in the inn’s structure is a jettied building of two storeys that stands in Devoils Lane. This formerly housed extensive stables that, in Bishop Bonner’s day, are thought to have also been used as a stable block by the house opposite (now Cooper's). To the right of the inn, in Bridge Street is the remains of another jetty. The ground floor of the pub interior retains very little original work, although 16th century construction features are still apparent on the first floor.
