A true real ale pub, we carry a great variety of ever changing beers. Our food is reasonably priced, traditional and varied with an excellent Sunday lunch and a take away lunch menu as well. In the evening, we have a varied menu on Friday evening and the rest of the week, you are welcome to bring in a takeaway. Open 7 days a week (from 2.00pm on Mondays).
