Unfortunately there is no customer parking on the premises, however, there is plenty of parking in the evenings and weekends at the council offices (100 yards up the road on the left).

Wheelchair access

There is a step up to the pub but we do have a portable ramp available. Please let us know if you need assistance by ringing the bell at the back door of the building and we'll be happy to help. I'm afraid we don't have a disabled loo.

Children and minors

The Black Jug is essentially an adult's environment, although children of the well-behaved variety are welcome until 5pm. Also, please note we do not currently have baby changing facilities.


Dogs of the well behaved and on-the leash variety are welcome away from dining areas.


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.

The terrace

Please order food and drinks at the bar.

If you are eating outside it is a great help if you could make a note of your table number before ordering. By the way, could you please keep tops on and shoes on at all times. This applies to blokes as well.
