Get a round in now, to enjoy after we open. This will help protect the pub during this difficult time.

New stretch target

We will use any spare funds to cover fixed costs while we are closed and then to restock for the reopening. As you know we tend to support other smaller, independent businesses where possible, so the money raised will help get our suppliers back on their feet in turn.

We might even use some of the extra funds for upgrading the decor and furnishings, and possibly even upgrade the Gents loos!


The global COVID-19 pandemic has created a very uncertain landscape for  millions of British small businesses, which is going to make it very challenging for businesses to survive. Pubs are particularly vulnerable as customers will have new routines and cheaper alcoholic products from the supermarkets. 

Together we can find a way to maintain the community we have built together. We need to remember the hidden value of a pub. Our real world networking is on hold. It has moved online, temporarily. Our Facebook page is full of supportive comments from the regulars. Many are keeping in touch by messaging, and phone calls.

We are supporting those who live alone or are battling the bug.

But we will be back - and you will be welcomed back!

For the first time, we are using this platform to raise funds. By offering beer tabs, tastings and gift vouchers for you to purchase now and redeem later. All vouchers will be valid until April 2021.

The money will help cashflow while we remain closed. There is currently no support from our landlord, or insurers, and it could be some time before government grants are forthcoming. We support many small, independent businesses in turn, so are keen to continue doing so in the short term.

Once we can reopen safely, we all want to enjoy a return to the pub, to rebuild the great community that has been created over the last 15 years. Let's plan for that.

Thank you for your ongoing support. Stay safe & cheers!
