A good old-fashioned pub with a warm welcome.

Sunday afternoons in particular have a nice, friendly family atmosphere – come and have a meal and play our traditional pub games afterwards or enjoy the sheltered suntrap of our South facing beer garden accessed through the bar.

There are always 6 real ales on offer including 3 guest beers.

And we can assure you that you won’t be troubled by the presence of a jukebox, a television or loud music (with the possible exception of Wednesday nights!).

Well-behaved dogs and children are always welcome!
