Perfect for all occasions

Our expansive pub space means we can cater for all of our customers needs. From a chilled drink by the bar, to a little nook where the kids can have some space, or a more refined and romantic meal in our restaurant, we have all the bases covered.

Our chefs have carefully crafted a mouth-watering menu and look forward to impressing you! We also serve a wide range of traditional cask ales, wines to suit all tastes and draught beers and ciders to compliment every meal and occasion.

Please note, due to the size of the venue, we are only able to take table bookings for tables of 8 or more.


The Cask Marque Award is an accreditation which guarantees guests the perfect pint of cask ale, every time. All the cask ales on sale are tested twice a year by a qualified assessor for temperature, appearance, aroma and taste and every beer must reach the required standard in order for the licensee to pass the inspection. Mystery visits may be carried out at any time and feedback is invited from the public.

Cask Marque is an independent, non-profit making organisation formed in 1998 with the aim of improving beer quality in British pubs through the accreditation scheme, training courses on cellar management and the setting of industry standards through a series of beer quality charters, including cellar management, glass-cleanliness and line cleaning.

Over 10,000 pubs hold the Award and each one participates in the ‘World’s Biggest Ale Trail’. This allows drinkers to scan the Cask Marque certificates in the pubs using their phone and the more scans they make, the more prizes they win. Download the CaskFinder App to join the fun!


Looking for a gift for that hard-to-buy-for friend or relative? With our Brains gift cards you can give them the perfect present. Load them up at the bar with the value of your choice* and let your friends and family enjoy food, drinks or even a night’s stay at a Brains Inn of their choice.

Or maybe you know a budding beer enthusiast who would like to add to their collection? Our very own Brains Craft Brewery cans and original Brains Beers are now available in gift packs. Cheers!
