Disabled facilities

We have full disabled access including a disabled loo and disabled parking. Please don't hestitate to ask if you need any assistance.

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.

Prams and pushchairs

In our larger rooms we are able to accommodate prams and pushchairs, although some of the smaller areas are too constricted to allow us to do so. Please don't hesitate to ask if you need somewhere to store yours while you're with us.


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.


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.

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.


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 a table isn't reserved you're welcome to sit at it and have a bite to eat or drink. If you can't find a table, ask and we'll try to find one for you.

Food ordering:

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 are afraid we are unable to accommodate wedding parties or functions.

The gardens

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.

By the way, could you please keep tops on and shoes on at all times. This applies to blokes as well.
