Christmas Day
Join us between 11.30am and 2pm for free mulled wine and mince pies as we celebrate Christmas in our cosy pub.

New Year's Eve

A gracious affair with a veritable feast. No bells and whistles, just what we do best: Honest, old fashioned British cooking in comfortable surroundings with a 7 course tasting menu. See our Christmas Festivities Leaflet for a copy of our menu. (Please email us if you'd like to see our vegetarian menu)
New Year's Day Brunch
Recover form the 'night before' with our New Year's Day Brunch. Starting at 10.30am we've got everything you'd expect at a good brunch - the full English, smoked salmon and the ultimate protein cure; a big, juicy steak.
