Behind the front bar is a musket ball in a glass frame with a plaque :

'This stone ball was found embedded in one of the oak beams within the Boot Inn. During restoration in 1986. It is a home made piece of ammunition which may have been used in a smooth bore musket. It could belong to the Civil War period. But it might also be much later having been used by poachers'.
