The Stag & Hounds was the top end of the village near the old Brockhampton Quarry. The Stag is now a private house called Hunters Rest and is the last house on the left going up the hill. The metal bracket can still be seen where the pub sign once hung. It closed in the early 1960’s probably because of lack of parking spaces for motorists.

David Denley, the landlord c1869 – c1879, briefly renamed the pub the White Hart.
