We wish you a warm welcome to…..The original, the famous and the much celebrated,
WINE – chosen with care, priced to be reasonable for the quality
ALE – against the odds…….we are still a 100% free house (‘can’t think of any around here’), so we are able to stock any real ale (local, a real passion of ours) or lager we wish and keep the price right. Our bar line up is not determined by accountants or bank managers (unless they are customers and behave themselves!), it is decided by our team, headed by a local CAMRA member and chosen for it’s quality and local popularity
COOKHOUSE – virtually our entire menu is freshly cooked (i.e. not ‘ready made’ so this is why you don’t see ‘homemade’ on some dishes as you do in most pubs…because here it’s nigh on all homemade! i.e. we cook it ourselves). Even though the portions are on the ‘very generous’ side, we tend to keep the bill lower than the local competition. We opt for honest quality of ingredients and source locally and use local trades, supplies and consumables wherever possible, which means you are our customers and we are yours!

A Note From Chef;
‘Please bear with us; we consider quality far more important than speed!’
(However, if you are in a hurry please let us know when you order) Sausages – ‘Marchants Hoggs’TM and the burgers, ‘Blacks Burgers’, are all made to our own recipes by literally, our own butcher. Upon the unavailability of a product, I do my best to replace it with one of equal quality
David Robbins – Head Chef
No Service Charge is ever added to any bills (nor the dodgy ‘optional’ service charge that’s already in the total!), if we deserve a tip then we believe that our customers, if they so wish, will reward extra good service appropriately
‘I am really, extremely proud of my pub and really enjoy running it, and we all want you to really enjoy visiting and re-visiting it! ‘
