This new bar, The Inn Over The Road, was completed in March and has been open three times a week under the stewardship of Michael and Rachel Sanders. More recently, using the new kitchen facility Sunday lunch has been on the menu and Friday evenings now see Fish and Chips available as either take away or eat in.
