Good food, good friends, good times


This is a proper dale's bar.... stone flagged floors, old wooden beams, rural knick-knacks and a big open fireplace. You'll feel instantly at home.

A place for locals and residents to mingle whilst enjoying good food and drink with dogs under the table watching on hopefully! We serve local real ales, an extensive selection of over 50 great wines from around the world, gins (including local), whiskies (over 15 malts from Islay) and more. Tea, coffee and scones (whilst the daily bake lasts) also served.

  • Black Sheep Best Bitter

  • Orchard Pig Cider

Open daily from 11am.
