An excellent venue to host a surprise party. Mark the Landlord/Owner and his Team were very accommodating and flexible to our plans and it was a very succesful night, with exclusive use of the pub for the evening too. Great food too. Thank you.

We are a family run business, specialising in home cooked foods. We are a variety of fish dishes, as well as some continental favorites. We are a little French or Oriental by design, so please expect some garlic or chilli to be present in meals. We cater for gluten and dairy free, and will also assemble vegetarian dishes to suit. We have a good wine list with a selection of both French classics, and new world. On Friday evenings we provide Dinner/Jazz events. These can be popular, so please book in advance.
