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.
Dogs of the well behaved and 'on-the leash' variety are welcome in the bar area.
If you are booking a table and bringing a dog please make us aware so we can assign a specific table for you.
The gardens and terrace
If you are eating outside on our lawns or terrace, it is a great help if you could make a note of your table number before ordering at the bar.
By the way, could you please keep tops on and shoes on at all times. This applies to the gents as well.
We have full disabled access including a disabled loo and disabled parking. Please don't hestitate to ask if you need any assistance.
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.
We are afraid we are unable to accommodate wedding parties or functions.
Following a small hiatus on issuing Meal Tickets whilst we were just trading outside, they are now back.
As a little reminder, 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 up until November 18th, 2021.
