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 jazz, folk sessions, jam sessions, singer-songwriter visitor friendly, 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 our our CAMRA Good Beer Guide listing) and have an increasingly local selection of ciders, lagers & spirits as well as premium lagers and interesting wines.  There is a small bar menu at lunchtimes with some homemade treats on offer.  Our accommodation features three charming double en-suite B&B rooms, the largest also being convertible to a family suite if required.
