Rattlebone Inn, Sherston
The pub's website LinkExternal link says "The Rattlebone is a beautiful 16th century village pub with roaring fires in the Winter, lots of nooks and crannies, and character coming out of every crack in the walls. We even have a ghost!"

The Youngs brewery website LinkExternal link says "The pub is named after John Rattlebone who was fatally wounded in the Battle of Sherston in 1016 when he fought alongside Edmund Ironside and defeated King Canute. The legend tells that after he was fatally wounded in the stomache, he picked up a slab of stone from the quarry outside the village to stop the flow of blood and fought on until the end!"
