We would like to say Happy New Year and a big thank you for all your support over the last year. You really have helped keep us going.
We are very sad that we won’t be welcoming you into the pub over the next few weeks and sincerely hope we will be having a big welcome back party in the spring!
Meanwhile we are providing freshly cooked meals for collection or delivery.
