Christmas MenuS


Finally after almost 3 years of restrictions we can really let our hair down this Christmas!

Whatever you fancy we can do.
A big dinner – boogie knees up with workmates, friends or family – check out our disco party nights on December 9th & 16th. Bucks fizz, 3 course dinner, crackers and hats, dance till you drop!
Something quieter for a close friends Christmas catch up – book dinner or a 2 course lunch from our menus or our regular December menu for just a tasty sandwich!
We are offering a two or three course pre-booked Christmas party menu package with a glass of Bucks Fizz (or soft drink) & crackers from £18.
Maximum party size is 25 – either in our main pub restaurant or for private use of the Rat Hole Bar.

Christmas Party Menu

Make A Night Of It?

We never lose sight of the fact that this is a “B&B” – but that doesn’t mean that your stay shouldn’t be memorable!

Rooms are located in a Georgian House next to the Inn – which not only guarantees peace and quiet, but means that bedrooms and their en-suite bathrooms are all large and airy with high ceilings. Decor is modern, bathrooms are sparkling and showers are powerful.

All our room prices include an English breakfast. Prices from £89 per night.

15% off all room rates for party goers – use promo code XMAS22 when you book here.
