We offer traditional, home cooked food available all day, every day. With light bites and sandwiches at lunchtimes to full evening meals, grills, pub classics and daily specials . . . there’s something for everyone. We also offer a separate children’s menu and our traditional Sunday roasts are not to be missed!

Look out for our Steak Specials every Thursday with steak meals from just £5.95 available all day and every Friday you can enjoy freshly cooked Fish & Chips for only £6.95. But if it’s just a pint and a bag of crisps that you're after then don’t worry we can do that . . . we're a pub after all!
