COVID SAFETY – It is vitally important to us that all staff and guest feel safe and re assured when they visit our pub – whether for a 3 course meal, a quick pint or a long awaited break away. We have a one way system through the pub and plenty of signage to help you. We have hand sanitisers available and we do ask every guest to sanitise their hands as they enter our pub. We are offering table service throughout the pub, restaurant and beer garden, and there is plenty of space between each table so you may feel comfortable. In order to look after the safety of our fantastic team you will find there are less people working together at any one time and we are all adapting to new systems. We ask for your patience while we continue to learn what will work best to keep offering great service in this new world. Please see our KEY POINTS below for more detail. 

DINE AND DRINK IN –  Currently not available until 3rd December, but we are taking bookings for after this time. 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  – During the November Lockdown we are offering takeaways available on Friday and Saturdays from 5 to 8pm starting Friday 13th November. All takeaways must be pre ordered and we will greet you with your takeaway in our porch to take payment as you cannot enter the pub during this closure. See our takeaway menu here with full instructions on how to place your order.
