The Beer Garden Opens Wednesday 14th April. We will be open 5 days a week, and we will still offer takeaways whenever our Kitchen is open. See our Beer Garden Opening hours here.

We are delighted that we can plan to re open our pub & rooms, indoor & outdoor from Monday 17th May. We will be open 7 days a week serving food all day and we are taking bookings. See our Covid 19 Update page for details.

Thank you to all our customers over 2020 and 2021 for your continuing support in these difficult times.

We are one of the lucky pubs to have a lovely Beer Garden, and so we will be opening our outside to drinkers & diners from Wednesday 14th April. We will be open Wednesdays to Sunday (closed Monday & Tuesdays) and serve food from 12 – 8pm, and last orders about an hour after the kitchen closes. We have some shelter, and some umbrellas but the opening of our outside will be weather dependant (fingers crossed for Summer in April!) and we recommend following us on social media to stay up to date with openings and closings.

We will not be taking bookings for the outside tables. Until the 17th May groups of up to six maximum are welcome from multiple households or groups of up to 8 from 2 households only. We don’t mind if you are visiting for a pint, a slap up meal, or a coffee. Guests will be allocated their table on arrival for a maximum of 2 hours, to allow us to keep seating guests on those lovely sunny days! There will be table service only in the Beer Garden, as per on going Covid regulations and the toilets will be open as normal, with a simple one way system through the pub to keep us all spread out.

Please see our Beer Garden menu here.
