About the Pub

Established 1995 in the former All Saints Parsonage, with many traditional features maintained while creating a warm and friendly atmosphere often filled with lively conversation. The real ales are generally from interesting breweries UK-wide. Frequent Tap Takeovers and Meet the Brewer events are held. The wide range of single malt whiskies, gins and rums does justice to the outstanding gantry. Freshly prepared meals are served lunchtime and evenings, but not on Mondays.

Children under 16 are not admitted.
