About the Pub

Under new management from July 2018, this is an attractive pub offering 2 real ales. The decor is excellent, including very comfortable soft armchairs and low lighting. There is a new, quirky vibe about the venue, and the management introduced a new menu along with a weekly quiz, music and gin tasting sessions. Definitely worth a try if you haven't been in for a while!
