The public house has a traditional English feel. It has a main lounge that is locally known as the Top Bar and a small lounge adjacent to the restaurant which is known as the Bottom Bar. The main lounge offers a real fire that is a warm welcome to guests in the colder months.
The restaurant offers full 3 course meals that you can enjoy in the restaurant. You can also choose to dine more informally in the lounge or the beer garden.
