Our food...

Our approach to food is simple, we take classic pub food and do it well. Lots of hard work goes in to sourcing suppliers that can provide us with top quality ingredients to help us make everything we cook tasty and satisfying.

Our ales...

We are passionate about the eight real ales we serve and enjoy searching for new beer from existing brewers and indeed new breweries; CAMRA have been kind enough to recognise our endeavours over the years - it’s a tough job
but someone has to do it!
