Plenty of sun fills the attractive space with lots of room for families and four legged friends to enjoy some lunch and sunshine! In the autumn and winter, when the chill begins to creep into the air, there really is nothing better than sitting in a cosy traditional pub and tucking in to a delicious home cooked meal, perhaps even accompanied by a glass of red wine, or two!

The newly refurbished pub provides a welcoming atmosphere within which to enjoy your food, the managers Gary, George and their team have already drawn praise for their exceptional service. Nothing is too much trouble, sit at the bar for friendly local chatter or tuck yourself away for a coffee and cake in the afternoon to relax either way, we can wait to meet you!
