Andy & Sally Francis are delighted to welcome you to their warm and friendly family focused pub, serving freshly prepared classic pub food along with daily home-made specials.

Having taken over the pub in June 2014, Andy and Sally have worked tremendously hard to take the pub to new levels, focusing heavily on high quality cuisine and excellent, friendly service in a warm and welcoming environment.

Both having over 20 years of experience in the hospitality industry both in the UK and overseas, the family have now returned to Sally’s original roots in Shaftesbury where she grew up. Their vision for the pub is to take it to new levels in terms of service and quality and create a traditional community pub for all ages with a buzzing and friendly atmosphere.
