Two sets of ball breaking blues from Benny James & The Blue Flames starting from 7pm & we will be serving FROSTY BEERS FOREVER!!!!

A few months back our beer garden roof collapsed under the weight of heavy rain and also the responsibility of keeping our customers warm and dry, and as a result it’s been a cold ‘n’ lonely winter.
