A Little Bit About the Hole in the Wall

The Hole in the Wall is a 16th century, Grade II, listed public house with a mid-17th century addition to the west gable end. If you’re wondering who christened the Hole in the Wall, the name was acquired by the pub actually having a hole in the wall. Exhausted farmers and workers would grab their real ales through the hole in the wall, and then stumble their way home. Although this fabled hole was filled many, many years ago, you’ll be pleased to know that we still serve reinvigorating, gastro quality food and drink we just prefer to let one of our friendly servers to deliver it to you, at your table.

We have carried out a COVID-19 risk assessment  and shared the results with the people who work here.We have cleaning ,handwashing and hygiene procedures in line with guidance.
