Being a modern take on a pub, the vibe is relaxed and casual. During summer it feels like a beach house, and in winter it’s like a warm feasting hall. Due to its open set-up and large high-top tables in the front area it is a great venue for large groups, and with its more classic low table restaurant section is perfect for dinners as well.On the upper level of the venue is the private function room. This room confidently creates a very intimate and special atmosphere. Stylish yet not garish, the room is lit primarily by 4 chandeliers which operate on dimmer switches in the evening, while during the day the large windows along the full length of one side of the room allow sunlight to pour in beautifully. The room even has a fully operational log fireplace.The private function room has its own bar with 4 taps for beer/cider selected from our extensive range of craft beer. It has its own toilet facilities. There is a room at the rear which can be used for storage, as a cloak room, or even a dressing room.Uses for this room are many as it is an open space. Private parties and celebrations such as birthdays, engagements, wedding celebrations, bucks and hens nights.
