The pub was bought late in 2011 by Martin King who had successfully run The Badger in Eccleshall for 18 years and wanted to expand his horizons from the constraints of a pubco business. The building was thoroughly refurbished during the cold winter of 2012 and re-opened in February 2012. The room layout offers several dining areas at both ground and first floor levels, from larger rooms to intimate smaller areas. There is a ground floor bar and drinking area off the side car park. The food is traditional English style and locally sourced where ever possible. The four beers are from national brands although there is occasionally a local beer from a micro brewery.
