A little pub history
Dating back to the 1700's when it is rumoured Dick Turpin stopped here, the Hare and Tortoise adjoined an old tollhouse. In 1890 the gates were removed and the tolls were abolished, the inn was converted into a private dwelling called Rossington Bridge House. Later restored as an inn we took back the original name as a sign of our heritage.
