England is slowly coming out of Lockdown – see all our planning below. 

Our Beer Garden Opens on Wednesday 14th April. We are not taking bookings for outside tables. Just come along and we will help you out. 

We are taking bookings for rooms and tables from Monday 17th May onwards pending further Government guidance. Please email us at or call and leave us a message which we will respond to as promptly as we can. 

COVID SAFETY – It is vitally important to us that all staff and guests feel safe and re assured when they visit our pub – whether for a 3 course meal, a long awaited break away or a long awaited pint! From the 17th May indoor bookings are limited to 6 individuals from multiple households or 2 households dining together. There will be table service only throughout the pub and restaurant, suitable spacing and hand sanistiers available. At this time we expect that guests are to wear facemarks when moving around the pub, with exceptions. 

DINE INDOORS –  Currently not available but we are taking bookings for Monday 17th May onwards pending further Government guidance. We strongly recommend booking, particularly on weekends, but if you wish to pop down without a booking please see our host and we will do our best to fit you in. 

TAKEAWAYS – Our last day of Friday night only takeaways is Friday 9th April. When the Beer Garden opens after this takeaways will be available whenever the kitchen is open and must be ordered on the day of collection and not further in advance. Takeaways can be ordered by phone, email or you can pop down to the pub and have a drink while you wait for your order. Items available for takeaway are marked on our Beer Garden Menu with the sign (TA). 

DINE OUTDOORS – We are opening the beer Garden on Wednesday 14th April, we are not taking bookings for outside tables. Just come along and we will find you a space. The beer garden will be open from 12pm Wednesday to Sundays, weather dependant serving food till 8pm & drinks till 9pm. Until the 17th May group sizes are limited to 6 people from multiple households or 8 people from only 2 households. Guests must be served seated at a table. Please see menu here.

ROOMS – Our 5 en suite letting rooms are closed until Monday 17th May, but we are taking bookings for after this time, pending further government guidance. We have devised a self check in system and lots of individual touches in our rooms so you feel safe and re assured during your stay. If you are booked to stay with us we ask that you contact the pub via phone or email to book a table if you wish to dine as numbers are limited at this time.

VOUCHERS – Any vouchers that were currently valid including previous extensions will have their 6 month validity re started on the date we can open for dine in – currently the 17th May. This means you will have plenty of time to visit us in the future. 

OUR THOUGHTS – This has, and continues to be, a challenging time with many uncertainties. We will continue to make decisions step by step and keep you updated as best we can. We are incredibly grateful for all the support and kind wishes we have received during our closure and sincerely look forward to welcoming our customers back .

Wishing you all the best, Becky & Ash
