Well we are planning this year's Beer, Cider and Music Festival and already have bands booked - with more to come. 


Of course, after having had to cancel our 2020 event we are fully aware that circumstances and restrictions may well cause some changes to be required for 2021 as well - BUT we are ever optimistic that we will be able to go ahead this time around.


Put the dates in your diaries and we will have a rip-roaring Festival this summer!!



Failing that we will be back BIGGER and BETTER in 2021





The programme for our Second Festival which was from 2nd to 4th August 2019 

We extended the Festival in its second year into a third day!  All the fun kicked off on the Friday evening when we opened doors at 6.30pm.  We had 15 real ales and a good selection of 10 ciders available in our Festival Bar as well as all our regular ciders, lagers and other drinks in the Bar - oh and in the pub we always have 4 real ales on tap.  we had another 3 sets of beers ready in the pub cellar to enable any  intrepid ale enthusiast to sample up to 27 different cask brews over the weekend!!  

FRIDAY  -  HOG  ROAST  and music from TURNETTE DOONE from 8pm

SATURDAY  -  50/60'S DISCO in the afternoon, in the early evening we had an appearance from CAMERON LEMMER a young and talented swing singer performing songs from Sinatra to Kaiser Chiefs and beyond.
