Throughout the week, our warm, welcoming Pub & Family Restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days a week and provides a popular rendezvous for visitors and locals alike.
Our delicious pub meals can be enjoyed on the veranda overlooking the town square, on the patio in our secluded garden setting or in our popular pub, with a roaring log fire in winter.
Once a month we offer a gourmet evening where the owners, both experienced chefs from top London restaurants, offer a culinary sensation that you will not wish to miss. Bookings are essential for this meal.
We also cater for small conferences, parties and functions for up to 40 people. A select wine list includes a range of South African boutique wines.
