Jon and Michelle Gardiner and their family took over the pub in 2007 and set about re-establishing the pub as the heart of the village and local community.
Their vision of a proper pub, serving delicious home cooked food using fresh locally sourced ingredients and great ale for sensible prices has created a place where locals and visitors feel warmly welcomed in a fun and friendly environment. Their inclusion in the Camra Good Beer Guide since 2011 speaks of their passion for serving a diverse selection of real ales.
