Traditional Country Destination Pub with a Contemporary Feel. We re opened after an extensive refurbishment at the end of June 2014, and now offer a superb choice of Traditional Pub food with a Modern Twist. We are becoming famous for the quality of our Fish and Sunday Lunch is always busy so book early. We can cater for private parties in our light and airy conservatory and our excellent Xmas Menu is now available however there are very few spaces left for Xmas Day. Please contact us to discuss your requirements. We also pride ourselves on our superb choice of Cask Ales and our Great Choice of Quality Wines. Please be advised that any Customer Feedback prior to June 2014 does not relate in any way to the way Rabbits now runs under entirely New Management.
