Pies or Cheese & Biscuits

We're delighted to be welcoming you back, 7 days a week from Monday 12th April. Our courtyard beer garden is sheltered from the elements, and if needed we have heaters and blankets to keep you warm.

We are stocked up with a full range of Ales, craft beers, lagers and ciders, wines, a massive gin selection, or pretty well any other tipple that takes your fancy.

To keep you sustained as you enjoy our range of quality drinks, why not order one of our Scott Brothers award winning pies and bridies, or we have cheese and biscuits as an alternative.

Outdoor Opening, 7 days a week from Monday 12th April

At the heart of our measures to combat covid 19 is plenty of fresh air, inside and out

  • 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

  • Once we are again allowed to open 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

  • We have freshly laundered blankets for your use if you feel a chill in the spring evenings

  • With plenty of other social distancing and sanitising measures in place, to keep our customers and staff safe, we hope you feel comfortable to visit us soon.
