Filled with charm, the 18th Century coach house boasts many of its traditional features – the Ostler’s House with its original cast iron cooking range, the Stables with their original wooden feeding troughs, and an open fire that warms the entire pub with its inviting glow. 

The bar has a strong focus on real ale – primarily serving Blue Monkey Brewery’s core range of beers, as well as a revolving line-up of quality guest ales from other fantastic breweries. With 9 hand-pulls, any ale lover is spoilt for choice.  

A wide assortment of other products is available, including Blue Monkey hand-crafted gin, an array of specialist beverages from local craft ales to Belgian beers, and real ciders and perries are always available.   

A wonderful selection of Pork Pies and other bar snacks are served daily. The option to bring local delicacies into the pub to be enjoyed with a pint of your favourite ale is also available. 

Dogs are welcome, events such as live music and pub quizzes take place regularly, board games are readily available, there is an expansive beer garden to the rear, charging stations are dotted around the pub, there are many quaint little rooms to tuck yourself into – the list goes on, but why not come and experience the delights for yourself?
