The pub will look a little different as 50% of the indoor seating has been removed along with all 8 of our bar stools. Extra benches have been purchased for both our beer garden and front terrace. As well as a new outside covered area in our beer garden.
Once at capacity a board will indicate this in the entrance.
There is no standing at the bar so please step back when ordering. There will be separate order and collection points in place which will be clearly marked.
Card is preferred but cash is also taken. Sanitiser points are in place and if in doubt just ask and we will be more than happy to explain and help.
If you have any questions or want to check availability please call me on 07792239612.

About the Pub

Former Punch Taverns local recently reopened after a period of closure by new owners. It has been completely refurbished. The real ale range has now been increased to three and can be from breweries far and near. The unusual name is said to derive from a travelling circus menagerie pitching in the field behind the pub. A tiger is said to have got loose and attacked a horse! Entertainment is high on the agenda at this pub with live music on Friday and Saturday nights. There is an open mic night on Wednesday evenings at 8.30 pm and a quiz on Sunday evenings.

Historic Interest

Believed to be the only pub with this name in the country. Said to be so named as a result of an incident when a horse was attacked by an escaped Circus tiger in a field close by.
