Occasionally the Inn offers live music in the bar or outside the Inn. This is normally on a Thursday evening or a Sunday afternoon. We are quite restricted by space in the bar so don't host many events, especially between April and September. We have a few regular acts who play throughout this time.

We also use our events calendar to promote/advise of other local events in the area so please check where the event is taking place!

Please also check out our Facebook page for updates or changes to events.
