Ye Olde Rovers Return was reported to be the oldest public house in the country, the building dating back to 1306. It was built as a manor house for the Wythin Grave family, and became a pub in the 18th century. It was sadly demolished in 1958, and has been reported as the inspiration for the fictional Rovers Return Inn featured in the long-running British soap opera Coronation Street.
