Bar menu
Open all year

This brick-built village pub narrowly escaped closure. Instead it underwent a complete revamp when pub entrepreneurs Mary Mclaughlin and Tim Bird entered into a joint venture with Lord Stafford’s estate. Reopened in 2016, the richly furnished interior is warmed by three log fires. Artefacts from the village smithy include tables made from old anvils, a blacksmith’s furnace and water troughs. Ales sourced within a 35-mile radius include Titanic Brewery’s stout. A speciality of the house is port, with over 30 sold by the bottle and a dozen of which can be tasted by the glass. Uncomplicated dishes of modern British food embrace pub favourites, seasonal specials, and home-made puddings. The pub is member of the Sustainable Restaurant Association.
