Live Life on the Veg

    Whether you’re strict vegetarian, keen to see what we can do with the humble vegetable, or just cutting down your meat intake, our veggie night has something for everyone. As the season changes, there’ll be warming stews, root vegetables and hearty dishes, all meat-free. Book a table online or call us.

      weekend wellington

      How better to embrace Autumn than with a beautiful prime British Beef Fillet Wellington, Creamy Mash, Purple Sprouting Broccoli & Truffle Jus? Fillet from Award-winning butcher Aubrey Allen, this classic is paired perfectly with our wine of the month. Just the thing after a long walk, kicking the leaves about.

      Enjoyed Thursday to Saturday between 18th October to 17th November.

      Why not ask for a taste of our wine of the month? Our favourite Pinot Noir, Castel del Lupo Pinot Nero della Quercia, from the hills of Pavia in Northern Italy. We think you’ll like it!

        P-P-Pick up a Pumpkin

        Halloween is just around the corner, so pop by with your little ones (or grown ups to) and pick up a pumpkin, carve it with your scariest face and drop it back to the pub on Wednesday 31st Oct. Remember to take photos and share it on our Facebook page, we’ll be giving a prize out for the best!


          We’ve decided to dig out the walking boots again for a Halloween pub walk, and we’d like to invite you to join us on Saturday 27th October.

          We’re planning to meet in the pub at 9.30am for tea, coffee and bacon butties before heading off for the walk at 10am. Fancy dress is optional, but encouraged!

          It’s relatively gentle 4-mile route exploring the local countryside, which is a perfect outing for all of the family. Dogs and children are most welcome to join us, there might be the odd muddy patch so don’t forget the wellies!

          After the walk we’ll meet back at the pub (around 12 noon) for a well-deserved beer or two and a spot of lunch if you fancy.

          If you’d like to join us please call us on 01582 469290 so we can get an idea of how large a pot of tea to put on!

          If you can’t make this date then here’s a link to the walk so you can pop along and stretch your legs any time you fancy.
