Reopened outside in April, and inside on May 17th 2021.

Food and drinks served all day from 9am until late. Hotel accommodation is also now fully available. Although space inside is limited to a degree, there is a large outdoor drinking area with many covered tables. Access is via the front door, for both inside and for the garden, so that Test ad Trace details can be taken. Current govenrment guidelines and regulations apply (rule of 6, table service, masks must be worn when moving around the pub etc.). Tables can be reserved by emailing: or contacting the pub by phone.

Five cask beers were available of Monday 10th May (before indoor reopening). These were: Thwaites Original, Gold and IPA, Hetton Pale Ale and Settle Blonde. The number of Thwaites beers available may increase once the range being brewed returns to normal following pub reopening. It is likely the new cask beer Thwaites Freedom will appear here too.
