About the Pub

This pub changed its name from the Venture Inn to the Venture Bar & Grill in summer 2015 after a major refurbishment when the two bars were knocked into one large area and the pub repainted and refurbished. There are usually two guest beers which change fortnightly as well as the five permanent beers. Food is served 12-3 and 5-10 during the week and 12-10 Saturday and 12-5 Sunday. The menu has sections for beer bites, mains, grills and desserts supplemented by brunch and baps at lunch time and tapas and burritos after 5pm. A children's menu is also available. Speciality coffees are available and there is a gin menu. Sky Sports and BT are available on six screens and all sports are shown. The pub can be very busy when major football matches are on. There are four tables at the front, two under cover in the entrance to the right. Although there is a disabled toilet there are steps to reach it. The best route is through the left entrance when there are two small steps, one into the pub and one inside. Private parties can be catered for. Dogs are not allowed inside. The pub was originally called the Desert Rat.
