About Us

Here is just a little info to let you get to know us better...


Here is little potted history of our pub and the local area... if you have a spare minute or two and maybe a cup of tea (or is that a G&T), we think it's well worth read.

If you'd like to put a name to a face, allow us to introduce you to the crew...

Front of house



Peter is from beautiful Budapest, and moved here in 2007 with his wife and two sons. He is a bit of a petrol head and loves F1, as well as being addicted to his 1982 black Porsche 911 (though he insists he isn't old enough for a mid life crisis). He cannot understand how the English drink tea with milk, and is best avoided in the mornings until he's had his triple espresso. Oh, by the way, he hates being called Peter Palfi Picked a Peck of Pickled Pepper - just try it.
