Looking for our takeaway menus?



We're taking room bookings again, now that the lockdown is being gradually eased.

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.

...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.
