Frequently Asked Questions
5 minutes. Please phone us on 01423 313461 to let us know in advance if you won't be on time for your table reservation. With only 9 tables inside the pub, they are often in high demand so we can't hold them for long.
As much as we love dogs, as it's only a small pub with just 9 inside tables, we don't allow dogs to stay inside the pub but we do allow dogs into our cosy courtyard where you'll find shelter, heaters, blankets, dog bowls and biscuits. To get to the courtyard you do need to come through the front door of the pub with your dog and head up the steps to the courtyard at the rear.
A selections of cured meats, cheeses, breads, olives, chutney, crackers, pickled onions & cornichons served on wooden sharing boards. In addition we make our own chicken liver pate and wholesome soups and we serve a tasty houmus with toast too. For dessert we home bake chocolate brownies, salted caramel & pecan brownies along with rocky roads and Victoria sponge muffins. We also serve our homemade stone baked pizzas on a Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. See the photos for the full menu.
