Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic this pub is currently offering additional services:
Opened Monday 12th April. Part of garden covered last year with a wooden gazebo to allow eat and drinking outdoors in (almost) any weather. The chill is taken off in this area by wall mounted heaters. For reopening there will also be an open sided marquee in place over the rest of the garden to provide additional covered seating. Advance booking is strongly recommended as space is limited.more information...

This is a beautiful old roadside pub where eaters and drinkers are equally welcome. There has been some form of drinking establishment here since the mid 1500s but the pub now has more of a 1900s feel. There is a lovely wooden floor, and lots of wooden pew-style seating a well as more usual tables and chairs. You can enjoy an open fire at one end of the pub, or a wood burning stove at the other. Fairy lights abound inside the main area, wound around the wooden beams giving the pub a cosy feel. Boating memorabilia adorns many walls. The pub has a wood burning oven which cooks the pubs wonderfully popular pizzas. In the summer you can enjoy the garden with "fire pit" style heating.
