The building originates from the 14th Century; the legend Dick Turpin has origin in the premises as he was allegedly arrested from here before being hung. 

We serve an interesting and mixed menu with classic British/European dishes with speciality Colombian and South American Dishes from our Colombian Food Team!

The bar is fully stocked with a varied selection of premium and standard brand alcoholic and non alcoholic beverages including tradtional cask ales, wines and spirits- including a large variety of Gins!

We host a Popular Quiz every Thursday night with free food and prizes. 

Outside, we have a sun drenched, fully furnished beer terrace with water feature and pond; a perfect place to relax with friends.
