Bookings for up to 6 people from a single household and 'the bell' ringing an hour earlier

We are currently only able to accept tables for up to 6 people. Inside, these 6 people (including adults and children) must be from a single household, whereas outdoors they can be from multiple households. We’ll also need to ensure you’re fed and watered by 10pm and customers are required to wear masks indoors when not seated at their tables.

With ‘the bell’ being rung an hour earlier, if you fancy a tipple to take home, we have some ‘last order’ drinks for you to enjoy at home. We also have our ‘Click and Collect’ menu up and running, so you can enjoy some of your favourites from the comfort of your home – head to our Click and Collect page to whet your appetite and place your order.

Please note, the above changes apply here as we are in a tier 2 area. However, if you live in a tier 3 area, please follow the rules that apply to that tier.

Thank you for your support and for helping us all play our part in keeping everyone safe.

Welcome

Our wonderful pub is over 480-years-old. In its life it's been a manor house, family home of the Earls of Lucan and a convent.

Now you will find it full of nooks and crannies, with a snug, a library and a warren of seven different dining areas, with plenty of terraces and gardens to enjoy the sun.

Menus

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.
