Our ethos is simple: we source the best possible drinks from the best local producers. ‘HBT’, our house ale, is made just for us less than 100 metres from the pub.

We will always source our ales from as close as possible.  In fact, most of our drink selection is British – from the finest single malt whisky in Scotland to our favourite gin ‘Twisted Nose’ from Winchester.

The wine list is Patrick’s special project and a chance for you to try something a little different.  We provide a wide range of wines by the glass, by the carafe or by the bottle – because we think that they are all fantastic examples and very good value . We also have a very special Fine Wine List which consists of limited quantities of some great wines at reduced prices because we believe everyone should have the chance to try the greats.


The Kitchen

Come and try our delicious, seasonal menu. All of our food is prepared fresh every day using the highest quality, local produce.

Our wonderful kitchen team make everything from scratch. Our main menu is based around seasonal dishes and our specials change regularly depending on what we can get hold of from our suppliers. All of our food is as local as possible and we only use suppliers we know and trust to use ethical practices.

We bake all of our own bread and the pub smells amazing every morning. We are open every day from 8am for breakfast and delicious coffee and tea and on a Sunday offer a choice of traditional roasts including a slow cooked sirloin of beef.
