The pub is looking fantastic, refreshed throughout and we will be picking up right where we left off, with an exciting weekly agenda of events for locals and visitors alike to get involved with. Looking forward, we’ll be continuing to support SAFFA, an armed forces charity, with plenty of charity initiatives coming up in the year, so stay tuned!”
