I remember this place from the late 70s. We used to come here through the woods from our family caravan at Holgates. There was a donkey by the path that we used to feed. Imagine my delight to find the place virtually unchanged. It's the...More

You either love or hate this pub. I love it! It's ten miles from where I live, but I still drive there for a pint just for the enjoyment inside and the views from the outside tables sat in the sun. Don't come here if...More

Hi, You might like to contact the pub direct on 01524 701655 (I'm just a reviewer) but I'm fairly sure the pub only opens at lunchtime at weekends. The rest of the week it opens in the evening.
