We have taken the decision to cancel this year's Beer Festival. At present we are closed due to the lockdown and COVID-19 regulations. If we are able to open early December, it would be very difficult for us to hold a good Beer festival with social distancing and reduced numbers.

We would be unable to have the amount of good quality and varied ales and ciders on offer for the weekend with the amount of people we would be allowed to have in the pub, so we have decided if we can't do it properly, we'd rather wait for next year.

We are sorry to disappoint our customers, but we cannot guarantee we will be open by then, and if we are, the COVID-19 regulations mean that we can only have seated customers, which drastically reduces our numbers. 

Next year the Beer Festival should be back - bigger and better! Please keep an eye on our Facebook page and website for more details on when we will be opening again and for details on our Beer Festival 2021.
Stay safe everyone, and we'll see you all soon.

Last year we were fundraising for a defibrillator for outside the pub. In conjunction with Friends of Furzeham Green, we raised enough money to put a defibrillator in an old red phone box, outside the pub for all to use when needed. 

In honour of Phil, we managed to install a defibrillator in the old red telephone box, for use in an emergency by anyone in the area. We unveiled it at our Beer Festival Presentation Night on Friday 31st January, after awarding the winners of the Beer Festival:

ALES: 1st Place - Ayup Dancing Duck, 2nd Place - Vogon Poetry Extreme Ales, 3rd Place - South Hams Defibrale-ator

CIDERS: 1st Place - Hunts Wobbler, 2nd Place - Sams Traditional.

Thank you to all who came, helped us raise money and enjoyed the beers and ciders we had on tap.
