About the Pub

Relaxed café bar with a modern contemporary feel, it has stripped-back brickwork and the downstairs wall features a mural of a murmuration of starlings. The pallet-fronted counter holds six handpulls with a well-chosen range of mainly Yorkshire beers offering a good mix of styles and strengths, usually including a dark beer, while the sixth pump is devoted to cider. In addition, there are 10 keg lines and artisanal gins. The beers are listed on a large black board on the bar back which is updated regularly, and on TV screens upstairs, with a live feed to the website. This old building offers three distinct inside areas, in addition to the downstairs bar there are two large rooms upstairs providing both family friendly space and café style drinking and dining. There is also a pleasant (non-smoking/vaping) courtyard garden area at the back of the pub. Teas and coffees are available from early morning together with a brunch menu, stone-baked pizzas are served from 12pm. Card payments preferred.
