Pub & Restaurant
(Formerly Called Earl's)
In addition to an extensive internal and external redecoration of the pub, work will include expanding the roof terrace and altering the floor layout to create more space for customers. We will also be installing a new kitchen in order to provide a delicious fresh food menu, using locally sourced ingredients wherever possible.
The drinks menu will be expanded, serving an eclectic range of beers, craft spirits and cocktails alongside fresh coffee.
The pub dates back to the 1800s, and we will be commemorating this fresh start by reinstating its original name the Market House. We will be retaining the pub’s emphasis on live music, however, and look forward to welcoming great talent from the local area.
