Who said "It never snows on the island" ?



Every Christmas we do a Christmas 'Mega Raffle'. Top prize is normally £1000, second prize is normally £500 and there are normally thousands of pounds worth of other great presents (including things like smart phones etc.).

Note: Prizes may be less than normal this year due to COVID 19 isues.

It's only 50p a ticket too!



Every year we go wild with our halloween decorations - some of which we acquired from the old waxworks.
Our visitors tell us that they have never seen anything like it!

Note: We may not have quite so many items on display this year due to the space shortage that COVID 19 restrictions have created.

Please click our hanging bride to see more images of our halloween decorations.

Dog Friendly

We are a dog friendly pub. All we ask is that your dog should be on a lead at all times.

We are deeply sorry to announce that our pub dog Max is sadly no longer with us. He left us on July 17th 2020 and will be deeply missed by locals, regulars and annual visitors that all got to know him and his 'Max Bingo' so well.

Goodbye Max

Thankfully, we still have our pub dog crazy Daisy:

We also have two naughty pub cats Tia and Maria:



We are proactive in heping to raise money for charities:
