TRADING STYLE The pub underwent significant investment in 2018 with Admiral Taverns breathing a new lease of life into this gem of a pub. The current licensees have done a fantastic job re-launching this pub with a great local trade who enjoy the home cooked food on offer with live music at the weekend proving very popular. The pub also offers the full range of live sports and these are well supported along with its skittle alley that forms part of the main trading area of the pub. During the summer months this pub trades very well and exceeds all expectations.
