About the Pub

Traditional village free house, reopened in October 2017 after a change of ownership and refurbishment. It is now run by the same couple who run the King William Inn in Scaftworth and attracts drinkers, diners, walkers and the local community. Four real ales are offered and the two changing beers are usually from local micro-brewers, with Pheasantry being particularly popular. The food is cooked to order. Pictures of old Firbeck adorn the walls of the snug area. The No 20 bus only serves the village Mon-Sat daytime. There is a piano in the bar area. Handy for visiting the ruins of Roche Abbey and countryside walks. Firbeck was the birthplace of the horse race that led to the St Leger classic.
