Trading Style:

The pub has been well supported by locals and visitors with strong wet sales and currently has a traditional pub menu offer. The wet and dry split is approx. 70% wet and 30% food. There is a good range of lagers, real ales and cider. The main bar is perfect for watching sports, playing pub sports and has an attractive light and airy feel to it.
