How it works

Whilst the world is all still a little crazy, we wanted to ensure Christmas is as easy as possible.

We’ve chosen to a Festive Menu, so whether it’s Christmas Turkey or one of our Pub Classics, they’ll all be available throughout December. To book a table, simply call the pub; 01277 295 693.

For Christmas Day bookings, please give us a call to reserve a table, but hurry as table’s will go fast due to demand. We will be asking for a deposit on booking and then the final balance along with your menu choices are payable by 1st December.
