About the Pub

Updated but still retains its ancient origins. It has a large rear courtyard with covered areas to keep the weather at bay. Interesting food is available lunchtimes and evenings. It is popular for the Tuesday jam night and bands at the weekends. See media for latest information on the current band list.
