The Venue: The Surprise is a friendly pub serving a wide range of drinks and ever changing selection of Real Ales. There is a restaurant and a garden at the back. Children are welcome and dogs are allowed in the bar and garden but not the restaurant. On Sundays there is Sunday Roast and some Specials on the board.
