Children and minors
Whilst primarily an adult's environment, children are welcome in areas away from the bar, although the pub is not very suitable for babies and toddlers in the evenings. We have changing facilities and some high chairs available.
We have full disabled access in the pub, including a disabled loo and disabled parking. Please don't hesitate to ask if you need any assistance.
Dogs of the well behaved and on-the leash variety are welcome in the majority of the pub, but we do have a section for those who would rather dine without. If you wish to book and have your dog join you, please let us know in advance to ensure you're seated in a dog friendly area.
Weddings and Private Functions
We're a pub at heart and that means that we like to welcome all our customer who just want to pop in for a drink or bite to eat. Unfortunately, this means that we can't accept bookings for large private functions.
We do however have a private dining room upstairs which can accommodate up to twenty guests. If you would like to see the room please ask at the bar next time you are in and, if it's free, we'll be happy to show it to you.
A few hints on how things work
First off, life revolves around the bar, so that's where to head for drinks, menus and to find out where you're sitting if you've booked. If you're arriving for an overnight stay, ask at the bar and we'll look after you from there.
Inside - someone will pop over and take your order. Outside - please find a table, note its number and then order at the bar when you're ready.
We do take bookings, but we try to make sure that there is room for customers who are not able to book in advance, so if you have not made a reservation, it's not the end of the world. If there are no tables free we run a waiting list from behind the bar.
Please make bookings by calling or using our online bookings calendar link at the top of the page. Unfortunately we are not able to take bookings via email or facebook.
We don't reserve any of our outside tables so if you enjoy a little alfresco dining these are on a first come first served basis.
Sadly due to our operation we are not able to cater for very large parties or groups.
If you are eating outside, it is a great help if you could make a note of your table number before ordering at the bar.
The gardens are intended to be relaxing for all and so, we ask that no ball games are played in the grounds at any time.
By the way, could you please keep tops on and shoes on at all times. This applies to blokes as well.
