Occasional meet the brewer events are also held. Lunchtime and evening meals are served daily. Regular live music, especially on Fridays, and quiz night is on Tuesdays. A large outside drinking area is located at the front. Very dog friendly with a small table laid out by the door with bowls, a container of water and a jar of treats.
