About the Pub

Stylish bar/bistro at the top of the Parade opposite the Town Hall. Rather more individual and interesting than its many direct competitors on the high street. The bar is open evenings only, when low lighting and candles add to an ambiance that attracts a stylish local crowd. Food is served all through the evening and the snug area can be hired for private parties. The unusual fireplace is adorned by a truly impressive display of melted wax from the many candles that have burned there over the years.
