The Crealock Arms is named after a 19th century village squire and landowner. Until 1977 it was the farmhouse for Shutta Farm.
Shutta Farm has been in the Nicholls family over 100 years. It originally had four bedrooms with a small cottage attached to it with one room downstairs and two small bedrooms upstairs, These bedrooms were incorporated into the main house in 1962, following the downstairs room several years before.
In 1976 Claude & Joyce Nicholls were granted planning permission to convert Shutta farmhouse into a public house. Work started early in 1977 with the pub opening as The Crealock Arms on 17th May 1977. The business proved successful and in 1978 another large room was added. Claude & Joyce continued to run the Crealock Arms themselves until September 1981. From then it was run by various tenants.
Claude & Joyce re-acquired the lease in 2004 and the Crealock Arms is now run by their grand daughter Clare and husband Rick. They have two young children Joseph and Emily May who are the seventh generation of the Nicholls family to live there. In May 2007 a brand new extension was built on the site of the old beer cellar. This now includes a brand new kitchen and toilets, including disabled facilities and a large veranda.
As has been the case over the generations a warm welcome awaits you all at The Crealock.
