    Welcome to the Davenport Arms, known locally as the Thief's Neck. Once part of the famed Capesthorne Estate dates back to the 18th Century in which the Davenport family were the game wardens to the King's hunting preserves. As hereditary foresters of the King, the Davenports had the authorised power to put poachers to death without trial. Hence, the crest of the Davenport coat of arms originally was a serf's head with a rope around its neck, signifying that the Davenports had the power to hang without appeal to the King. This same crest can still be seen today from the pub's pictorial. The legend has it that the tree which stands outside the Davenport Arms was used to hang wrongdoers, hence the nickname 'The Thief's Neck' let us hope that any louts stay on their best behaviour! There is outdoor seating to both the front and rear of the pub. The rear of the pub boasts a large area to sit and for children to play in with views of the adjacent fields, the local cricket pitch and livestock. Recently, the team began renting the rear space for those wanting small functions such as weddings, christenings and birthdays. So whether to party or spend a relaxing afternoon with friends and children, The Davenport Arms makes the perfect venue.
