Despite our best efforts to put on this event the Coronavirus and the necessary restrictions in place meant that we had to regrettably postpone the event. 


If we can arrange a date later in the year we will!!!



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.
