Le De Spencers Arms


Originally built as a bakery the building was on a drovers route heading to London. In more recent times, between the wars, this part of Downley Common was a nine hole golf course - customers leaning over the front gate would have been watching play on the fairway to the eighth hole.

The unique name of Le De Spencers Arms is down to Francis Dashwood, who became 15th Baron le Despencer and within whose estate the pub lies. The title of ‘Baron le Despencer’ described the role of its early holders, that of dispensing funds or services on behalf of the King.

Wondering about the name? The pub is titled after Francis Dashwood , 15th Baron le Despencer. It is his estate on which the pub lies.{hotelid}?check_in_date={check_in_date}&check_out_date={check_out_date}
