Pub Layout

As you approach the pub from the front you will find the front seating area which is laid out nicely and attracts the sun, offering an inviting ambience. As you walk through the doors and into the restaurant, the bar is directly in-front of you with seating to the left which leads onto the large catering kitchen. The bar is very attractive with new pumps recently installed and an impressive wine selection. To the right there is a walkway to the small bar area which makes an ideal space for televised sports, the ladies/gents toilets can be located from here. Externally, there is a car park for up to 20 cars.

Current trade is 60/40 to drink but this does vary some weeks depending on public holidays and weekends when the food is busier.  The food offer is excellent with home-cooked pub grub (restaurant quality food) and the current trade is based on this. The Park has an excellent wet trade here due to the selection of beers, wines and spirits and the sports that are also on offer.

This pub has become the heart of the local community.
