Eat & Drink

Our chefs create, prepare and cook meals daily for our constantly changing seasonal menu.

Our menu can be described as rustic modern British pub food. All our meats are supplied by Phyllis and Lee Harper at Highgate Butchers, and all other produce is carefully source from respected producers locally wherever possible.

The menu changes daily, and is uploaded to our website by 11am every day.


Government Guidelines

Even though the Government have lifted the restrictions we still think it’s wise to keep some of the measures in place. They are

- We will not be taking any large group bookings, the largest group booking we will accept is 8 people including children, toddlers, and babies (Inside and out).

- We will be operating a table service only policy so you will not be able to order at the bar. Our staff will still be wearing masks apart from those who are exempt.

- We will no longer be enforcing checking in with the track and trace app but it is still available if you wish to use it.

- As the back garden is not covered, we will only take reservations for these tables 48 hours in advance, and it will be weather dependent. You must phone us to reserve the tables in the rear garden.


Please do not try to book multiple tables to make large groups as we will have to cancel your booking.

Please arrive on time for your booking. If you are 15 minutes past your booking time, we will cancel your booking. If you are unable to make your booking, please call us to cancel so we can give the table to someone else.

If you have children please count them as one person when counting how many people you are for the booking. Dogs, please let us know in your booking notes that you have dogs so we can make sure your table has ample space and so we do not put you next to other bookings that have dogs.


Please note:

Bookings of 1-2 are for 2 hours
Booking of 3-4 are for 2 hours 30 minutes
Bookings of 5-8 are for 3 hours



We will be operating at 30% reduced capacity so there is plenty of space.
The maximum table size inside is 8 people (including children, toddlers and babies)
We are lucky enough to have plenty of windows and doors so we have a substantial airflow throughout the pub.



The maximum table size outside is 8 people. We only have 4 tables in the front garden that can accommodate 8, please note it is a very snug table of 8 people.
The front garden has a marquee roof on it, and the sides are open for plenty of air flow.
