A dog friendly pub that offers seating for drinks and food at the front and bar area. There is also a restaurant to the back with more tables for big or small parties. The bar area tables can be found next to a large, beautiful fireplace. In the winter, dining next to the fireplace is the perfect, warming escape from the conditions outside, and the atmosphere of the country pub as a whole adds to a great experience. 

The bar area is large, with another space to the right of the pub where snacks can be ordered if you wanted something light and not off of the main menu. We have local ales on tap as well as well as some of the commercial favourites. We also provide an extensive wine list, that compliments our dishes.

Sunday roast was great, loads of meat and proper roast potatoes with a light Yorkshire pudding. The sweet was fine but not as good...
