A family owned Free House run by Shelley and staff, offering genuine hospitality with the emphasis on simple, but great food and drink. Ideal for both the sunny summer months with a great front courtyard, rear patio area and garden, which also has a play area for the children. In the winter the roaring log fires are alight every day to welcome and warm you. The pub has two large well-lit car parks, disabled access and families are welcome.
