Our doors are open!
With the easing of restrictions, it's great that you can now head to the pub just like the olden days.
It’s still very important to us that we strike the right balance between loosening up the restrictions, whilst also being mindful of our customers’ and crews’ continued safety and well-being. With that in mind, we wanted to reassure you that we will, of course, continue with our high standards of cleaning in all we do. We will continue to sanitise tables between use and whilst there are no longer any restrictions, we are still mindful of the spacing of our tables, to ensure you feel comfortable. We will continue to make sure the pubs are nicely ventilated and some of our crew and customers alike will choose to carry on wearing a face coverings.
And, just to let you know, we’ll be happily redeeming meal tickets, (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 be glad to extend these until November 2021, just dust them off and bring them along.
We are so looking forward to seeing you soon.

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.
