About the Pub

Please note that the pub is under new management since 20th April 2018 and some of the features/facilities listed here may not be available.

Single bar pub serving a range of 8, sometimes more, mostly-changing beers. An upstairs area has table football, a pool table, and additional seating. The large, walled & paved garden is partially-covered (smoking area) and is an oasis in the summer, although the trains passing beyond the wall regularly remind that you are in town. Two mini beer festivals are held each year. Up to twenty foreign bottled beers available. Sandwiches and rolls are often sold in the pub, and this is supplemented by a Pizza van that parks outside 5.30pm until 10pm (or sold out) Wednesday to Saturday. Well-behaved children are welcome until 7pm, although there are no particular facilities for them. The upstairs area can be reserved for private functions.
