    Weekly Happenings

    Sausage O’Clock – Join us at the bar, any weekday, between 5-6pm, to enjoy a taste of Jimmy Butler’s finest sausages. Served alongside planet-saving Rubies in the Rubble ketchup. Once they’re gone, they’re gone!

    Fish Fridays – Only the most sustainable fish gracing our specials boards every Friday night, the only way to start the weekend.

      Pie Night

      As colder days draw in, we turn our specials boards to our favourite pies every Wednesday night. From hearty duck shepherd’s pie, to the ultimate fish pie, venison, chicken and a vegetarian option too – it’s the perfect midweek treat.
