Heart of the community

We have the ultimate secret garden that is the perfect location to enjoy a delicious meal in the sun. Children love running around the garden and gazing at the stunning summer house in the middle of the garden.

When you step inside there is a warming ambience, we have coal fires that are lit throughout the winter. There is something quite special about sitting around one of our roaring fires with a perfectly poured pint of Dark and a chocolate cake on a Sunday evening!

We regularly throw events and try and raise money for local charities.

Please like us on Facebook or follow us on twitter for keep up to date with what’s going on.

We are also proud to offer a fantastic range of function and event packages to cater for all occasions. From formal, three course sit-down meals with arrival drinks, to an evening buffet with accompanying entertainment, we would love you to see what we have to offer.

For your no-obligation appointment with our special events coordinator, contact us on 01792 894097 or email



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!
