About Us

Live Music

Join us for live music every Friday and Saturday night. We have something for everyone from solo artists, duos, bands and even a Karaoke disco once a month.

Pool and Darts

What bar would be complete without a few games to blow off steam? After you grab a drink, set yourself up with a few games of pool or darts and play the night away.

Two large bars

Our large saloon bar has a big stage, dance floor, plenty of seeting and access to our beer garden. We have background music playing in both the bar and garden. Our public bar is our sports bar with two TVs, pool table, dart board and juke box which is updated regularly.

More details


Our public bar can be transformed into a beautiful function room for hire. This is providing there is no big sporting event on the day so ask us for more details. (Sorry but we do not hold 18th birthday parties).


We have three TVs each with their own sky box allowing us to show up to three different events/matches at the same time. This also means during big games they can all show the same so no need to all crowd round one. The TVs are also linked to the sound system to give a better viewing experience

World cup 2018

Don't sit indoors on your own, join your mates down the pub to watch the match and build some atmosphere.

keep your eyes out for upcoming promotions.
