About the Pub

Excellent country inn with a homely interior, hung with hops and beautifully decorated with flowers and bunting. With vaulted ceilings, log burners and exposed timbers the Dovecote has a cosy atmosphere and old shotguns add an antique feel. Westons Old Rosie cider and a varied range of 4-5 ales from near and far are served straight from the cask and the pub has held its place in the Good Beer Guide over many years. Good pub food is served except Sun/Mon evenings and can be enjoyed alfresco during the warmer months. Live music is performed fortnightly on a Monday when opening hours alter to 7-11.30pm. Outside there are large gardens where you can try your hand at the unusual game of Bat & Trap. Additionally there is a children's play area and a shaded patio with plenty of seating. A wide range of events cater for the local community while visitors from further afield can be assured of a friendly welcome and carefully maintained ale.
