The Heathcock has been shaken up since it reopened in August 2017 – the interior has undergone a refurb and a new menu has launched as new owners inject life back into the pub. Having won Pub of the Year at their previous business The Kings Head, the new owners have now brought their expertise to The Heathcock.
A warm colour palette paired with traditional decor mean the lounge bar is a cosy place to curl up with a pint. Nibble on lounge snacks such as toasted walnut and beetroot hummus served with ciabatta, and baked Camembert served with crusty bread and caramelised onion chutney as you catch up with old friends.
Meanwhile the restaurant area is more contemporary and has plenty of space for those looking to dine. Choose from the casual dining menu, which features an assortment of reinvented pub classics. There’s the homemade beefburger served with fries, a tasty seafood sharing platter and fresh sea bass served with new potatoes, to name just a few.
Friday sees a popular steak and fi sh night, and on Tuesday evenings punters compete at the quiz night. Visit on Sunday for a roast, served with homemade sage and onion stuffing, fresh greens, roast potatoes, fresh veg and homemade gravy.
The owner is particularly proud of the beer garden, which boasts plenty of colourful picnic benches and is lit up with twinkly fairy lights as dusk descends.
