Our Lounge Bar

We serve a wide variety of hot drinks from our local coffee supplier Brian Wogan, local beers, ales and ciders and a wine selection handpicked by the staff (it was a tough job but someone had to do it!)

During the colder months we also serve “Winter Warmers” such as mulled wine and cider, and hot spiced rum. On Tuesdays we serve cocktails from an ever-changing menu, so look out for your favourites or if you dare, try our lethal but delicious house Cocktail, the “Anti-Social”.
