A pub is a state of mind, and that alone sets it apart from any other drinking or eating establishment. It is a place where relaxation, stimulation and conversation are the order of the day. In their “local,” as the English refer to them, a sense of being “at home” is very much in evidence and it is the publican’s job to ensure the maintenance of that atmosphere.

Informality is rampant and many a stout Englishman has fallen to the lure of his local, most notably when walking his dog. The urge to “dive in for a swift pint” has challenged and defeated the hardiest of souls.

Nikolas Pevsner said, “The function of the pub is company, human nearness,.. snugness not smugness.”

Welcome to our pub. You should be a stranger here but once. We hope that you will enjoy our local.
