To the right of the bar leads there is a small seating area and external door to an outdoor garden space. The pubs has a catering kitchen and capacity to cater for up to 40 covers. The pub also offers a smoking solution and WIFI.
We have some exciting plans for a full internal and external decoration. We have planned to add a covered area to rear of the building to enhance the beer garden. This will include works to the back bar and ensuring the interior of the pub is all to a great standard.
The private accommodation includes two bedrooms, a kitchen and lounge.
