The pub's name comes from a local legend of a 'cunning man' - a good wizard who would help to protect people from dark spirits and witches. The original building was destroyed following repeated flooding, however the newly re-built pub-restaurant has been impressively restored in its original style - complete with thatched roof.
There numerous attractive walks around our pub. From our attractive gardens there is an exit directly onto the Kennet and Avon Canal towpath where one can stroll and see the narrow boats passing by.
