Keeping everyone safe amidst the Coronavirus pandemic

We have put some changes in place in order to keep everyone as safe as possible and so have moved our information section into a new page.

Click here for details of the changes we've made

Opening times

We can now welcome those from 2 households or groups of up to 6 people from mixed households (including children), to enjoy some alfresco eating and drinking. We do have outside areas that can be booked online between April 12th and May 17th or alternatively, we are keeping some tables aside should you just want to pop down and enjoy a drink or a bite to eat without a booking.

Whilst we are obviously all keeping everything crossed for good weather, it’s best to come prepared for every eventuality, so wrap up warm, bring a blanket and perhaps even an umbrella, just in case. If the heavens do open, we’re really sorry but we won’t be able to allow you to shelter inside the pub.

Meal Tickets

We’re having a little hiatus on redeeming meal tickets just whilst we’re trading outside – as soon as we are open inside the pub, we’ll be back to normal, redeeming them again. We hope you understand.

A Meal Ticket is received for each main course or light bite purchased at full price. Six tickets can then be exchanged for any main course up to £12 from Monday to Thursday (excluding Bank Holidays, set menus, ticketed events and click and collect). For full terms and conditions, please click here.

Expiry date extension: As it was not possible to redeem Meal Tickets throughout a lot of 2020, tickets with a November 2020 expiry date will be accepted from when we are able to open inside once again up until November 18th, 2021.
