Customer Update - 24/09/2020

Like all Pubs and Restaurants, we will be closing each evening at 10:00pm.

We ask all clients to ensure they bring a mask when they want to walk around the pub.

We will be offering table service and we are of course still ensuring we're following all government guidelines with regard to social distancing.

We really appreciate your continued support.

Many thanks Caz & Kev


During the lockdown we have made a fantastic dining area at the front of the pub. All tables are fixed at two metres for social distancing , in fact all tables inside and out are at two metres. As a business I will be following strict Covid rulings for everyone's safety. We are able to accommodate 150 people plus  all socially distanced .

We are cooking from 6pm on Saturday and will offer a full Sunday roast service on the Sunday .

Booking a table is a must as we will be operating table service only.

We can't wait to see everyone so please support us and we'll do our upmost to keep everyone safe at this very difficult time.

We're  sticking to two metres, your safety is more important than our profit
