Our bar boasts a rotating selection of the finest local ales, alongside an interesting and carefully selected wine list. The bright and spacious bar area is an excellent place to relax with a pint and put the world to rights! If you need something a bit more substantial to fuel the conversation then our restaurant offers both light and not-so-light bites, a weekly specials board and also a selection of tapas.
