After a great reopening weekend, we want to reassure our customers that we will continue to follow government guidelines to keep everyone as safe as possible.

Over the last couple of weeks we have carried out an extensive risk assessment to ensure we provide a safe environment for you to eat, drink and spend time with family and friends. We have changed a few bits & pieces since you were last in; we are staggering arrival time for guests and asking for details inline with NHS track and trace scheme, team members are having their temperature taken on arrival, implemented a one-way system, placed two metre distance markers throughout the pub, put up Perspex screens around the bar and added free standing screen around the inside, spaced all our table for 2m social distancing, installed sanitising stations, introduced disposable menus and condiment sachets and encouraging contactless payments. Cleanliness and hygiene remains one of our top priorities.

We would like to thank all of our lovely customers in advance for respecting our new house rules. We look forward to welcoming you back.


Please call us for bookings or any other queries and concerns you may have.
