We’ve got everything you need from a country pub near you.
The history of The Sovereign goes back over 160 years to the reign of King George IV when a local entrepreneur, Seth Senior built a brewery on the site in 1829. Legend has it the business was started with a borrowed sovereign and many believe that in commemoration of its origins, a gold coin is still buried somewhere on the premises.
Our menus are full of hearty favourites and country pub classics, as well as our seasonal spring dishes, and we’ll be ready with a well-stocked bar, including cask ales, fine wines and British gin to suit very taste - which will taste all the better when enjoyed either in our beautiful gardens or by our crackling log fires.
We look forward to welcoming you!
There’s always a great reason to visit The Sovereign.
