Pub Layout

On entering the Grapes you are welcomed by the beautiful cosy decor with exposed stone walls, wooden and stone flooring along with exposed beams all of which are in great condition. To the left of the pub you will find a small snug area with a small hatch to the main bar. The main bar is situated at the back of the pub with a mixture of fixed and loose seating. Separating the main bar and the dining area there is a fantastic exposed stone chimney housing a double sided log burner, creating a fantastic focal point in the pub. The dining area continues to a separate room away from the bar on the right hand side of the pub, with loose furnishings along with another log burner. On the first floor of the pub you will find a games room, accessed from the stairs in the entrance hallway which houses a pool table and darts board. Doors from the games room lead in to the spacious function room, which does exceptionally well with parties and community events. Outside the pub, there is parking to the rear which is used for the church and school as well. To the left there is a patio area with picnic benches which opens up to an absolutely enormous beer garden, ideal for summer events and games within the community.

The Grapes is your typical, traditional country pub. With a strong hearty food offer and a great selection of drinks including cask ales and high end spirits. This community focused pub offers something for everyone with breakfast offers on shoot days, to garden parties and events in the function room.
