See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

Modern and spacious community pub and acoustic music venue, specialising in sourcing beers from around the country that are not commonly found in the area. The ground floor is one large room with an attractive timber bar. A central polished timber staircase leads up to a large room with a separate bar serving keg lines, but no cask ales. Original fireplace recesses have been retained throughout showing evidence of use from a previous age. Open mic night is the last Tuesday of the month and booked acoustic artists play on Thursday evenings and Sunday afternoons, see the pub's FaceBook page for details. On the second Tuesday of each month there's an acoustic trad folk music session in the lounge. A regular comedy night is staged in the upstairs room on the first Wednesday of the month. At the back is the large beer garden, created in a Mediterranean style, with table benches, low walls, up-light feature trees, a covered area and a bar hatch. There are four real ales, often including a dark ale, one from Bewdley along with Wye Valley HPA, and two changing interesting beers sourced from independent breweries. Keg taps are also eclectic, always including a dark and/or sour beer. The local Copper Beech craft beer is unfiltered and unpasteurised. Various recipes of pork pies from the local Wyre Pie Company, sausage rolls and scotch eggs are available. Level access to the ground floor, with a separate spacious WC that includes baby-changing facilities, although it's not adapted for disabilities.
