eat, drink & be merry!

We are a relaxed pub suited to all sorts of leisure and business occasions.

We would love to cook for you, whether you require a table for two because you can’t be bothered to cook at home or if you just wish to chat and enjoy life.

We don’t charge extra because we don’t normally use table cloths or pretend to be something we’re not. Our menus are straight forward and honest. We use the best, freshest and whenever possible, locally sourced produce.

And remember, you don’t have to dress up if you don’t want to.
