Winter or Summer the Le De is the perfect pub to relax in. Our large garden is child friendly and dogs are welcome provided they are on a lead. When the nights draw in the open fire and low beamed ceilings provide a warm and cosy atmosphere.
The large car park is fenced off from the garden.

Le De Spencers Arms
The unique name of Le De Spencers Arms is down to Francis Dashwood who became the 15th Baron le Despencer and within whose estate the pub lies
You may pass a terrace and pair of cottages on your way to visit the 'Le De' called Golf Links Cottages and Golf Link Villas and wondered, with no flag to be seen how they came by those names?
Between the wars that part of Downley Common which is still largely open today was a nine hole golf course and opposite the gates to the course used to stand a pub called The Golf Links. Some years ago Frank Hyde 0ne of our old regulars, left a pencil sketch in the pub of the course layout as it was in 1939. That layout is replicated alongside.
At one time customers may have been leaning over the front gate watching play on the fairway to the eighth hole.
The Golf Links pub.
You can see other old Downley photographs and watercolours in the Le De.
