Whether you are looking for a snack and a pint by the fire after walking the dog, or celebrating an occasion with a 3 course dinner and fine wine, we look forward to welcoming you soon. 
Our style of food is traditional home cooking and unpretentious. The menu changes regularly using local seasonal produce but features some good old pub classics all year round. 
 
We serve a good selection of well-kept real ales, the majority sourced from local micro-breweries, craft lagers, and of course lots of gin!
