Celebrate Christmas at one of the best preserved 17th Century Inns in the Country

Merry Christmas 2022 - there is room at the Inn!

Come in and enjoy real ales from local brewers and good locally sourced food (dogs, children, walking boots and bikes are welcome but optional!)

Don't want to leave the dog at home?  Not a problem - our furry friends remain welcome at The Ostrich throughout the festive period and we have free dog treats on the bar.

Xmas Food and Beer

Our Christmas Menu is for meat-lovers and vegetarians and uses locally sourced ingredients prepared with care!

Our Christmas Menu applies trom 5 December to 1 January except as indicated on our opening hours.


Our dishes use the best ingredients sourced locally and are prepared on site by our chef, Nicola, and are cooked to order. 


We aim to be as inclusive as possible through our veggie, vegan, and gluten-free options. Contact us if you would like to know more!

Xmas Bookings


For larger groups we can offer reserved space and menu choices to suit your budget.  Please speak to Nick on 01594 833 260 during our opening hours or e-mail


It's always best to book if you know when you want to eat with us, that way we can ensure that you are seated comfortably and on time.

Service times and booking details are below.

Just pop in!

Most of the seats in our main bar are left open for walk-in customers and there is always room for one more at the bar!  At peak periods when the kitchen is busy there may be a wait for food, but in the meantime you can enjoy the great beers ciders and wines and keep warm by the fire!
