Landlord John Walker said the new Bike Fest and beer festival weekend was a fantastic success with live music and entertainment from Friday night through Saturday, with people camping over in the show field behind the pub.

John said they had planned it as an opportunity for people to get out after the pandemic restrictions and enjoy themselves.

“We had nice weather and 12 hours of live music,” he said: “We have ale drinkers looking to come again and we will probably do the event twice next year. It is not often a pub has a big events field attached.”
