Spring is fast approaching (finally), with slightly drier weather hopefully on the forecast and the bulbs and hedges beginning to bud, join us here at the The Rusty Axe where we have lot’s to look forward to in 2020.

It might well be flooded from here to the other side of the country, and everywhere else as this rain will not stop. We are open as usual and have an array of new events coming soon, the weather will hopefully dry up before long and and spring bulbs and hedges beginning to bud, we already have daffodils out.
We’ve been as busy as ever here at The Rusty sorting out our next few months events and offers. Not quite looking at the ‘C’ word again yet but we are 6 months into the year of planning ideas and events that we hope you will enjoy!

Our seasonal menus are being created as we speak with Spring time offerings incorporating local and seasonal ingredients. The new menus will be available to view on the website soon.

As ever Sue will be concentrating on using seasonal, fresh, local and sustainable produce within her menus, focusing on using high quality ingredients and preparing and making everything in house, with a change of season on it’s way, Sue is busy deciding on a great seasonal menu that will have you springing out to grab a bite to eat,  including some firm favourites and new dishes sure to bring the notion of Springtime to the plate.

For all new customers that won’t have visited before, we have overhauled the main bar, dinning area and kitchen, which now caters for all, serving great food, an extensive drinks menu, wines from around the world and some great local ales and ciders.

As an extension to the friendly, warmth of the bar area, we have  the all singing, all dancing Gin Bar stocking at present approx 20 different gins and premium spirits and longe area, located within our newly refurbished dining room, in our opinion a great asset to The Rusty Axe.

The whole inn having undergone new decor and modernisation to create a perfect drinking and dining experience for all, whether an intimate dinner for two or a family gathering, we are sure that we can accommodate all our customers needs and requirements.

We are now on full service from the kitchen with an array of dishes to suit all, with our family friendly bar menu, our one, two and three course menus, evening menus, specials board and Sunday lunch menus, we look forward to welcoming you soon.

We are always on the look out for staff that would be an asset to our team, whether kitchen, front of house or bar, drop us an email or give us a ring and enquire.
