NOTICE: Venues need your support more than ever during the ongoing coronavirus crisis.

A nationwide lockdown is currently in place in England, and you are required by law to stay at home. Hospitality venues can still provide food takeaway and delivery services, but can only sell alcohol by delivery service.

But please be aware that opening hours and services may be different to those displayed here. Before visiting or ordering from any venue, we strongly advise you to check its website or social media, or get in touch with them first to avoid disappointment.

If you see any details here that need updating, please let us know by submitting feedback on the pub.


Reopening 4th July
Saturday and Sunday 12-12
We look forward to welcoming everyone back to the pub and having some fun but there are a few things you need to know if you’re planning to visit over that first weekend.
Because of distancing rules we have reduced seating capacity indoors. Nobody is permitted to stand or sit at the bar currently, you must have a seat if you want to be indoors. Drinks are all done via table service.
We are taking bookings for inside seats for next weekend to avoid chaos, the maximum group size permitted is 6. We will allocate seating depending on group size. If you want to watch football, mention when you book so we can make sure you get a view of the tv.
Please send a message to the pub FB page or text/call 07565 781985. You can ring on the day to check availability too.
Saturday afternoon is virtually full up already but there are places for Sunday.
There is increased seating outside and that doesn’t need booking. Unfortunately the play area and Wendy house isn’t permitted to be open yet. Table service for drinks outdoors too, it’ll be like being abroad 
While it’s looking busy on the first weekend it won’t be during the week, there’ll be plenty of quiet times for a pint and a socially distanced chat.Are you ready to restart the pub quiz or shall we see what the next few weeks brings?
We’ll need 5/6 teams minimum really to make it fun.
You’d book a table so we know how many are coming. Drinks and supper would be served table service but everything else would be the same pretty much.
Wednesday 9.30pm
8 free drinks to be won
Free supper

About the Pub

Recently refurbished locals pub in a prominent position on a junction in the heart of the village. Reopened by a community group, who reintroduced real ale. More recently, the lease was taken over by an individual. The real ale range has now been increased to up to four and the guest beers are usually sourced from local breweries with Bradfield often featured. One handpump is often dedicated to a real cider. The pub has become very much a community hub and can get very lively. There is a popular Wednesday evening quiz. Street food is available from a van in the car park Friday evening.
