THE LITTLE PUB WITH THE BIG GARDEN

We are a visitor friendly locals’ pub - traditional without being old-fashioned.  People gather here for exceptional real ale, great cider, lively chat and so much more, including live music, book clubs, poetry groups, our community fundraiser quiz nights and even a bit of crafting (check out Purl and a Pint).


We have one of the biggest all-weather gardens in the area, a great place to enjoy the sunshine and have a drink with the family (dogs on leads welcome).  We love local product (check out our CAMRA Good Beer Guide listing) and have an increasingly local selection of ciders, lagers & spirits as well as premium brands and an interesting choice of wines.
 

Our accommodation features two charming double en-suite B&B rooms, plus a studio apartment with king size bed, sofa bed and kitchen dining space.
