November Ostrich Acoustic Night.jpg

Acoustic Thursday Sessions

Our ever popular Thursday Acoustic Sessions take place on the third Thursday  of the month - check our music listings for details.


Unrestricted opening 7 days a week

At the heart of our measures to combat covid 19 is plenty of fresh air, inside and out​, so we will continue to keep windows and doors open whenever we are able.

  • If you prefer to sit outside, we have extended the  Courtyard and given it a complete makeover, including lots of new seating, separated through landscape features, and planting

  • We have rain covers and parasols to protect you from too much sun or rain

  • We have installed new outdoor heaters and freshly laundered blankets are available

  • Indoors, the pub lends itself to comfortable spacing of tables in tucked away locations

  • We will have lots of fresh air breezing through with windows and doors open front and back whenever we are able

  • If you wish, please feel free to continue to wear a facemask, and make use of the nhs track and trace app - the qr code will remain located at the end of the bar near the front entrance.

  • We will be retaining sanitising stations, together with our regular thorough cleaning regime.

  •  We do ask that once served at the bar, customers move away with their drinks, to provide space and distance for other customers and for our staff.

  • We hope you feel comfortable to visit us soon.
