The Half Way Noggin Pub is an attraction in its own right; enjoy the roaring fire, and large selection of refreshments served. Meet Bo-Jangles the resident Donkey in the pub or go back to the 1930’s and watch Charlie Chaplin and Laurel and Hardy on the original movie screen in the lounge while the kids happily entertain themselves in the farmyard and playground area.

The country kitchen offers a selection of scrumptious food all day, served in the restaurant, dining room, or terrace overlooking the beautiful English country garden.

The new owners have brought the grand old lady back into her prime. She is definitely worth a visit!
