Our marquee and garden are now open!

We are delighted that our garden and marquee tables are now available for bookings and we can now welcome people from 2 households or groups of up to 6 people from mixed households (including children), to enjoy some alfresco eating and drinking with us.

As our number of tables is limited we would be very grateful if you could make your reservation on-line or by calling 01892 770278 to avoid disappointment, although we do have tables in our front garden for anyone wanting to pop-in for a drink, but these are available on a first come, first served basis.

To contend with our old friend, ‘The Great British Weather’ we have installed new garden heaters & umbrellas, but please can we encourage you to wrap up warmly and bring a few extra layers just in case, as we are not allowed anyone inside the pub until May 17th when bookings for our indoor tables and Garden Room are possible.

Our team are working tirelessly to ensure that everything runs as smoothly as possible with our new set up, so we would like to thank you for your continued patience and support for which we are very grateful.
