Dogs are welcome on the patio water bowls and biscuits are provided to make sure they are happy customers too. Unfortunately we are unable to accommodate our four legged friends inside but we will certainly look after them whilst enjoying their snack outside.

    We serve wonderful breakfasts and lunches all cooked by our fantastic chef who prepares a daily special board using local and seasonal produce this can include anything from steak and ale pie to lamb kebab. In addition we cater for the lighter appetite with light snacks and of course sumptuous cakes. All our food is freshly prepared and wherever possible everything is baked and prepared on site; from the cakes to the chips. We also cater for small outside catering events and can hold private functions by special request.

We believe our commitment to excellence and the fact that we love what we do is the reason our customers return time and time again.
