Today the pub offers superb cuisine in a warm and welcoming environment. The tenants, Andrew & Michelle Davies have brought their vast experience, most recently from a private members golf club in Derby, to our village pub. They have managed to maintain and balance the community needs for a rural meeting place with those of fine diners.

There are regular social gatherings, quizzes, drinks evenings along with the Tuesday night musicians (fiddle, accordion, mouth organ, guitars and bodrum), Wednesday evening walking group during the summer months and pub pool teams.
