The ‘moon’ part of this Wetherspoon pub’s name links it with the ideal pub described by George Orwell. The well-known writer called his fictitious pub ‘Moon Under Water’. The Moon on the Hill opened here, on Station Road, in 1991. The building was previously a general store. Until 1979, it had been Wheatlands Furniture Shop for over 60 years. Station Road is the centuries-old Greenhill Lane, first recorded in AD1273.
