1986 Village Pubs
The Pubs play a central part in the life of Owlswick and Longwick. There are three pubs in Longwick, the Red Lion which has a well recommended dining room, the White Horse, which plays the largest part in village affairs and the Duke of Wellington. A fete is held in the garden of the White Horse in August and a harvest festival in the bars in Autumn, and it also provides good food and accommodation. The Duke of Wellington right at the east end of Longwick also has its devotees. A yearly cricket match is played between the regulars of the White Horse and the Red Lion. The Shoulder of Mutton at Owlswick is also a Motel and issues a brochure showing it to be the centre of the South of England. Business conferences can be held there and many facilities are available.
