The Bacchus (Elsdon)

The Bacchus was originally an inn called the Scotch Arms. The building has been split up into different dwellings and some have later been recombined. They are now known as The Bacchus because of the fine carving of Bacchus seated on a barrel above the original doorway. The original inn is now called Bacchus House and now includes a former cottage called Bacchus Cottage North. This is a Grade II Listed Building protected by law.
