Food Burger 105-Laura Crouchley

We add a little humour to most things we do though our food we take very seriously. All our ingredients are sourced as locally as possible and everything is prepared in house. Serving proper pub food just how you always hoped it would be.

Website OA Sports-4

We are avid sports fans here at the Open Arms and have all the sports channels including Sky and BT Sports. We show all the Premiership fixtures, Champions League, Six Nations and anything else that involves grown men and women chasing each other around energetically.


We host weekly events like our popular Quiz Night, and also know how to throw a good party. So come and join us to celebrate your birthday, Christmas, New Years or any other good occasion that's worth coming together for.

Drink and Be Merry


Check out our selection of beers, ciders and spirits. Of course, we've got a great choice of non-alcoholic beverages too.
