The One Bull
If real ale is your thing, look no further. We offer our own Brewshed beers brewed at our craft brewery just down the road.
We’re passionate about wine and have created an award winning list which offers a selection of old favourites combined with some more unusual and quirky wines. The common theme is that we believe they are all well made wines offering good value for money. Every single one of our wines are available by the glass (except some champagnes).
On the food side, the emphasis is on good quality, seasonal produce and, wherever possible, we source it locally. We love Sunday lunch and offer a great roast – bring the family or meet up with friends and catch up on your week.
We’re open from noon until late. So if you’re in need of a locally roasted coffee in the afternoon, you know where to come.
Free wi-fi is available throughout the pub.
