Our doors are now open!
We're delighted to be able to say we can now welcome those from 2 households or groups of up to 6 people from mixed households (including children), into the pub at long last.
Just to reassure you, we still have all the same safety measures in place, and not that any of us go anywhere without a face covering these days, but just a reminder to wear yours when you’re not seated at the table. And, just to let you know, we’ll be happily accepting and issuing meal tickets again, (collect 6 and receive a main course up to £12). Don’t worry if you have tickets with a November 2020 expiry on, we’ll happily extend these until November 2021, just dust them off and bring them along.
We are so looking forward to seeing you, come rain or shine.

It's hard to believe that when it was built for Lady Frances Cooke Grimston in 1838 she referred to it as a 'little cottage'. This beautiful building has been lovingly transformed into our 'little pub'.
The stone terrace has been extended to become the perfect spot for Al Fresco dining, overlooking the lawns that gently slope down towards the River Ver at the bottom of the gardens. (Although we say so ourselves) we feel we offer a gorgeous environment to dine in, either in spacious light rooms or tucked away into the cosier nooks and crannies.
Our menus are created daily from fresh, local produce, dreamt up by our talented team of chefs who cater for lighter appetites as well as those wanting hearty British pub classics. Equally it's a great place for a drink, with the bar sitting at the heart of all things, offering a haven for those who want to try a myriad of fine whiskies, gins and real ales.
Our passion lies in finding quality fresh ingredients and preparing, cooking and presenting them in a modern but unpretentious way. Our menus have a spine of classic British dishes complemented by more exotic influences from other parts of the world. We upload them to our web site each day before 12 noon so that you may peruse them at your leisure.
