About the Pub

This was the second pub to win the local CAMRA Pub of the Year award in 1988 and a high standard has been maintained ever since. Entrance is through a short corridor past the former bar, now the Howard Winstone function room, takes you into a cosy bar on two levels, with much rural, fishing and music memorabilia scattered about. At one end a log fire brings welcome warmth in cold weather. A number of books adorn the shelves. It has plenty of olde-worlde charm with its low, beamed ceilings and a warming dark decor. Can you spot the TV? A good selection of food is available both in the bar and the adjoining Lionel Sweet restaurant. The menu includes popular main courses, a salad selection, a variety of baguettes plus blackboard-listed specials. Traditional Sunday lunch served 12-3pm. En-suite accommodation makes this a useful base from which to explore the area. The real ale range reflects the choice of local customers and rarely changes.
