Before booking with us, please ensure you have familiarised yourself with these rules:

  • Unfortunately we can only serve single households and support bubbles inside and outside our lovely inn. Please book table accordingly and don’t be offended if we have to ask the relevant questions to check.  We’re just trying to follow the law and keep customers and families safe
  • We can only accept bookings for diners and continue to operate table service only so sit back and relax.
  • Face coverings must be worn unless seated at a table indoors whilst enjoying a meal or drink.
  • Our pub doors will be shut at 10pm
