Our menus offer honest, home-cooked food like pubs used to serve: tasty, satisfying, proudly British. You can enjoy a proper sit-down-at-the-table meal or, if you’re more in the mood for grazing while nursing your pint or you’re a bit pushed for time, try our Bar Snacks. These are Bar Snacks with attitude; generous, full of flavour, deliberately tempting – hand-raised pork pies, Scotch eggs, cauliflower fritters – they’re almost a meal in themselves. Why not order a selection and share with friends?
Lunchtimes and evenings, tuck in your napkin for handsome starters such as potted shrimps or crab on toast, hearty main courses (perhaps fish pie or steak and chips) and old-fashioned puddings. Daily specials, such as Friday’s fish and chips, plus a platter of British cheeses add more choice. Eat upstairs or down, on your own or with friends, one course or four. It’s your pub, you choose.
Monday to Saturday 12-2:30pm Sunday 12-5pm
We choose our beers for their quality, craftsmanship and interest. House ales are from Wylam Brewery, up the Tyne valley, and include our own-label brew, ‘The Writer’s Block’, a lovely dry-hopped pale ale. We have regularly changing guest beers, Guinness and Peroni on tap, and an interesting range of European bottled beers. Plus there’s top-quality Aspall’s Suffolk cider, 14 wines by the glass and a quirky collection of whiskies.
Our pub is your pub. Simple as that. We get a genuine kick out of making you feel at home. We won’t ignore you at the bar, we’ll serve your drinks with a smile, we’ll even try to remember your name.
Who will you find here? People who like good beer, good food, good conversation, good company. Oh, and good cheer – that indefinable, warm, fuggy feeling that only the best pubs manage. You’ll meet new people, re-discover old pals. Why, you might even make us your local.
