Hi! If you have driven by recently you will have noticed that there are a lot of things happening at the pub over the past few weeks. We took over the pub in early March and are racing to get it ready for everyone to come join us for a pint! Unfortunately there was too much to do to open on 12 April, but we are trying our best for the first May bank holiday. In the meantime, if you are in the area, feel free to stop by and say Hello, Diederik, the new landlord, is on site most days. We are on the hunt for a great chef and bar staff, so if you are or anyone you know is interested, send them our way.
