About the Pub

Rebuilt to a design by A E Cogswell in 1930, this pub replaced another of the same name which had existed since the 19th century. The interior remains largely unaltered, with the large L-shaped public bar having herringbone block flooring, an open coal fire and some interesting, upholstered bench seats running around the periphery of the room. A dart board is mounted on the rear wall, above which is a display of trophies won by the pub's teams over the years. A pool table stands on the right side of the room and there is also a jukebox and quiz/gambling machines. Sports events are shown via Sky and BT Sport. A collection of football team pennants adorn the bar-back and there are items of maritime memorabilia hung on the walls. The pub's former lounge bar, to the rear, is now used for dining on Sundays (the only day of the week that the kitchen operates). This small room features an original fireplace and has its own bar servery. Roast dinners and other popular main courses are served. Additionally, the pub hosts a Sunday meat raffle at 2:30pm and there are also weekly snowball and bonus ball draws. The pub has a sizeable patio garden.
