The Bars

The Highwayman Inn is like the Tardis.  Step in through the old stage coach and enjoy a very surreal experience!

As well as intimate dining areas, we have several cosy nooks and crannies in the Hideaway Bar where you can relax and enjoy a drink or two.  If you explore here you can even find a 6ft Minotaur, named Asterion, hidden in his grotto.   There are runes, a wishing bottle and touch of tarot in the magical Witchy Corner but if that is not your cup of tea, the Coach Cabin Lounge has a huge bellows rescued from a local forge, and a more equestrian theme, with several harnesses and bridles from the days when people used horse drawn coaches instead of cars.

Low-beamed ceilings add to the olde-worlde feel of the place.  If you follow the once secret passage way, past a sarcophagus of Tutenkamun, it will lead you to the Rita Jones’s Locker Bar, with its gothic door from the old whaling boat, the Diana, that was built in the mid 18th century.  This piece of architectural salvage, carved with the head of Diana, the Goddess of Hunting, stands proud at one end and at the other, the bar counter is a sea-dragon: a natural piece of bog oak fashioned by nature and the elements into this dramatic shape.

Dogs on leads and well-behaved children are welcome.

The Locker bar has been created to look like you’re in the boughs of an old wooden ship. Upstairs the theme is continued with cabin accommodation.

Exposed beams and the general ambience of the lounge bar create a wonderful backdrop for a long cool local Cider.

Step down from the Lounge bar into the Hideaway; an ideal place to take in all the mystery you will have seen in the other bars

Settle down in the Snug bar for a chat with the friendly staff and fellow visitors. (Maybe Samuel will drop in!)
