• Closed for the foreseeable...

    Thu 12 July 2018

    You may or may not have heard of the unfortunate event that happened on 11th July...

    The driver of a car travelling towards the pub suffered from a medical event in the early hours of the 11th, and failed to negotiate the bend, resulting in the car travelling straight on at speed into the boundary wall and frontage of the pub.

    In a nutshell, there is extensive damage to the building, and we are not able to trade until extensive repairs have been effected.

    Follow Facebook for more details.

    Our thoughts are with the driver of the car and his family at this time.
  • Better quality beer for longer...

    Sun 24 June 2018

    We have now installed a DraughtMaster dispense system for our San Miguel and Brooklyn Lager, offering you the very best quality lager we can.

    In DraughtMaster's own words...
    "DraughtMaster is the biggest innovation to happen to draught beer in 50 years. The system keeps beer sealed-in and untouched from the brewery to the moment it comes out of the tap. Nothing comes into contact with the beer, keeping it perfectly fresh for six-times longer than the old steel keg system. Whilst beer in steel kegs starts to lose its freshness after 5 days, DraughtMaster’s sealed-in system keeps beer consistently fresh for at least 31 days."
    Come on in and see what you think.

  • Great British Cookbook

    Wed 26 November 2014

    We are very proud to be part of the Great British Cookbook which features 200 chefs from 10 different regions from around the UK, including Rick Stein (OBE), Anna Hanson (MBE), Michael Caines (MBE) and Richard Corrigan.

    Our Head Chef, Wayne Roberts' signature dish, braised shoulder of Anglesey lamb with root vegetable rosti, garden greens and a redcurrant and lamb jus, is the recipe we chose to feature in this book, and is also currently on our menu.

    The aim of the book is to raise £200,000 for MacMillan Cancer Support and Hospitality Action by Christmas, with all proceeds from the £12 eBook download going directly to the aforementioned charities.

    To get your copy, go to

    The book is amazing, with fantastic photos of all the dishes including information about some of the small local producers that also feature in it, and would make a great Christmas present for anyone interested in food.
