Looking for our takeaway menus?



It looks like the lockdown restrictions will be at least partially lifted soon; possibly mid-July so keep watching this space, and also our Facebook pagefor updates.

We are accepting bookings from 14th July 2020. However due to exceptional circumstances we find ourselves in, we have decided to accept bookings of a minimum of two nights for the next few weeks or until things change. Because of the extra work involved and time involved, one night stays are no longer viable. We trust you will understand and can bear with us.


At the moment the restaurant remains closed and we will continue to offer takeaway food Thursday Friday Saturday and Sunday lunch. This will be reviewed on a weekly basis and updated will be posted here and on Facebook. We expect to bring back our catering staff very soon so expect an announcement re food service shortly.

I am sure you will understand that we live in strange times at the moment. Please be assured that we are following all government guidelines. We have carried out the Covid 19 risk assessment, and we are doing everything to keep our staff and customers safe. We look forward to seeing you all soon.

...and a "Thank You"

We also want to take this opportunity to thank all of our customers for their support during the lockdown. The takeaway service both for food and cask beer has been greatly appreciated by a lot of people, and from us. The positive comments from both locals and from further afield have been very encouraging and heart-warming.
