The last time the pub was renovated, it was overseen by Steve Derricot, the previous Landlord. Needless to say, Liane McPhelim, the following Landlady had
renovated the pub further so I have taken some pictures of the new décor for those who may not have visited for a while. Just to remind you that Dean
McDonald is the present Landlord.
The resturant in the pub is now open 7 days a week and there are two chefs splitting the week
between them. Monday to Wednesday and Thursday to Sunday. If you have not been for a while,
it is well worth a visit to try out their cuisine.
