We are ideally looking for owner operators with good catering skills and the ability to deliver a quality food offer.

A passion to keep and dispense our cask ales to the highest standard is also very desirable.

It has all the qualities that you expect from a community village pub; a warm welcome, well-kept cask ales and tradition pub food.

We would expect a split of 60/40 in favour of wet trade.
