Dogs of the well behaved and on the leash variety are welcome in the public bar. When booking a table, please let us know if you have a dog so we can seat you in a suitable spot.

How things work

First of all, life revolves around the Bar, so that's where to head for drinks, menu's 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 for a drink or a bite to eat. If you can't find a table, ask us and we'll try to find one for you.


We do take bookings, but we try to make sure that there is room for customers who haven't had the chance to book in advance, so if you haven't made a reservation, it's not the end of the world. If there are no tables free, you can grab a drink at the bar until something pops up. Bookings can be made over the phone or via our online booking calendar link at the top of the page.

Food ordering

We offer table service in all areas of the pub, but feel free to pop up to the bar to place your order there if you prefer.
