The Old Harkers Arms


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.

Front of house



What's Brunning & Price without Harkers, and what's Harkers without PJ? He's been here longer than most of the furniture. The life and soul of the party, wether it's yours or his. The only thing he loves more than his family, kite surfing and a top notch Bordeaux is a well-polished hand pump. Carlsberg don't make the ultimate landlord, but if they did...


Assistant Manager

Eve started at Harkers in December 2017, just in time for Christmas! After focusing on her family, she has worked her way up and is now the official mother of not only three beautiful girls but the whole pub (staff and customers included). You can see her relaxing at the end of the bar with a glass of French Rosé in her hand if not asking staff to tuck their shirts in.


Assistant Manager

Pint size Tehya joined our management team in May 2022. Don't be fooled, she can stand her ground especially dealing with the Chefs - a task in itself! When not behind the bar, you'll find Tehya relaxing with more than one, well deserved pint.



Head Chef

Andy is a doting father to his two young boys - or trainee chefs, if you will. His roast potatoes are the best around, and he is always cheery and handy to boost morale in the kitchen, especially when you put a check on for a three course dinner a minute before closing.
