Food & Drink

Excellent Food - With our team of chefs running the kitchen, you can expect delicious home-cooked food beautifully presented and packed with flavour.

Quality Drinks - We are proud to be a Cask Marque recognised pub and have a great selection of real ales including at least 2 seasonal guest beers.

Wines are served by the glass or the bottle from an exciting and changing wine list. For coffee and tea lovers, we offer freshly brewed speciality blends.

Our current menus closely resemble those below but may not be exactly the same and are subject to seasonal variations.

Dog Policy

We are a dog-friendly pub and welcome well-behaved dogs on leads in the garden, bar and one area of the restaurant. Dogs are also welcome in some of our guest bedrooms.

Please mention when booking if you are bringing a dog so that an appropriate table or room may be allocated.

If dining with your dog we ask that owners be sensitive to other guests. If a dog needs food or water please take them outside where water bowls are provided.

Unfortunately, due to a lack of facilities in which to keep them safe until required, we can no longer accept cakes brought in by customers. As an alternative we are very happy to provide candles and plates decorated with a celebratory message for the special person(s), should they wish to order dessert. We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience or upset this may cause, and thank you for your understanding.
