Pub overview

Full of old charm and character this pub is on a large plot which has retained the unique feature of a bowling green that can be overlooked from the garden.

A predominantly wet led pub that is a traditional drinking site. Holding a prominent location in a busy spot of the town, this is your typical local that will thrive with regular events on offer.
The pub has been recently refurbished and is in excellent condition. It is welcoming and friendly and has built a reputation for showing football and rugby as well as hosting regular entertainment at weekends in a warm and relaxed atmosphere.

The pub does not have a catering kitchen but there is opportunity to make use of the function room, you may be able to introduce a ready-made food solution like Barrel & Stone Pizzas, provided by Greene King.

The new layout is open plan with one central bar which creates a modern retail space that’s easy to manage. At the back of the pub is a full-sized bowling green, which also helps to ensure that this is a social hub for the area. The large car park is ideal for people visiting to play a game and, of course, stop for a drink afterwards!
