Welcoming and cosy family pub,

mouth-watering food

We are a family-friendly, locally-loyal, dog-loving, passionate about food, professional team whose mission is to offer the best atmosphere to our customers. A proper cosy country pub, with plenty of character, where everybody is welcome. But...in our food offering we veer from the well-trodden path.

We serve à la carte small plates menu Tuesday through to Saturday. Our à la carte plates section of the menu is designed to offer a diverse and well-rounded experience. You will best experience our menu if you choose 2 or 3 dishes per person as you desire.

The dishes come out of the kitchen as soon as they are prepared and freshly cooked. There are no starters or main courses. We offer meat, vegan and vegetarian plates, tidbits and some sharing dishes for the table. Prepare for a social and informal meal, with a lot of choice.

On Mondays we open only during the evening and serve a shorter menu. 

On Sundays we serve a traditional Sunday Lunch Roast Menu, which includes starters, mains and desserts.

Our menu focuses on what is available now, first locally and then going further afield. So it changes most of the time every day and is relatively small.

Take a look at our sample menu through the link at the top of the page.
