Bookings are for food only; we do not book tables for drinks. Drinks tables are available on a first-come, first-serve basis only in the bar area only.

We take bookings for up to 10 people in the restaurant via the ResDiary booking system. If you have allergens or are vegan/vegetarian, please leave a message in the comments section online or call us on 01727 530332 as we are unable to cater for allergens on the day.

To reduce no-shows, we have implemented a credit card booking process. There is no charge to your card but if a booking is cancelled within 48 hours of the booking or a customer does not show up the card will be charged.

Dogs are not allowed in the back restaurant room but are welcome in the bar area which is not bookable.

Please be advised the bar is very busy at weekends, especially during the evening and may not be suitable for your pet.

We apologise but we cannot guarantee a specific table and do not accept requests for the table suitable for a dog online. Please call the pub on 01727 530332 before booking should you wish to check if Dylan’s table is available.

Slow Cooked Pork Cheek Bourguignon, Whipped Potato, Horseradish.

New on the menu this month is our Dingley Dell Pork Cheek which is brined for 24 hours in a mixture of citrus fruit, spices and herbs to give exceptional flavour throughout the meat. (Josh uses this for many of the pork dishes on our menu to lock in moisture and add taste.)

It’s then confit and slow-cooked for a melt-in-the-mouth texture. Ultimate comfort food when served with a side of cheesy leek gratin.
