A look back at The Village Inn's past...

It was first built in the 18th century as a village coaching inn. Later named The Star Inn which was leased from Arnold Perrett & Co (from 1891 and 1903 licensing books) which sold gold medal Wickwar ales.  Many years after it was purchased by Wadworths Brewery and renamed The Dinneywicks Inn. This was named after a nearby field where its owner levied a toll because it straddled a highway. In 2018, The sadly failing Dinneywicks was sold by Wadworths and became a free house. In 2022, The Dinneywicks was sold again, purchased and rebranded to The Village Inn by Rich, Kev & Jayne who have given it a new lease of life.
