Charlie, who was Young Scottish Chef of the Year in his heyday, came here via the Marine Highland Hotel on Royal Troon Golf Course, Claridges, Gleneagles and the Savoy, an awesome pedigree by anyones standards.
A varied traditional menu is always available, but it is no coincidence that since Charlie's arrival his expertise and flair combined with Karen our second chef have transformed the food side of the business using locally sourced ingredients wherever possible and lots of imagination.

Cider is a permenant fixture in our country pub with a choice of FIVE including Stowford Press, Magners, Strongbow, an ever changing local cloudy cider & a Premium cider made by Westons "Mortimers Orchard", which has been chosen to appear in just a small number of pubs across the UK.
Did you know that many years ago in our pub customers had a whistle baked into the rim or handle of their ceramic cups. When they needed a refill, they would simply whistle to get some service. "Wet your whistle" is the phrase inspired by this practice, however we now use high quality glassware
