Fancy playing a tune or two in the pub?
We have a lovely piano (in tune!) and a guitar in the pub - if you fancy playing a tune at a time when we have no other live music please feel free. Entertaining the rabble will usually earn you some free drinks!!
Got a live act you think will go down well?
We do also book paid acts in the pub - although our pub is very small so our fee is too, and we only have room for 3 band members maximum. Acoustic (unplugged) acts only. To enquire about performing please email email@example.com
