Recently refurbished, this pub now offers a changing selection of beers on handpump and craft beers listed on a blackboard. A beer menu also advertises their craft beer selection which includes some unusual options for the area and good value snacks. The current landlord and landlady took over in March 2019 and have renovated the pub throughout and removed the pool table and dart board. The pub holds quiz nights every Monday. Vinyl nights on Wednesdays. Beer garden.

Children are allowed in the beer garden until 2000.
