Our History

Paul and Sally Shipley are back at the Bryherstones after a break of around 14 years and are pleased to welcome you to their new venture.

The pub and restaurant were previously run by Paul's parents, Brian and Mavis Shipley, from 1983 along with their son Paul and daughter Leigh, and were joined in 1986 by Sally, Paul's wife. Working together until Mavis and Brian's retirement in 1995, the family built a reputation second to none in the local area for good food, drink and a warm welcome.

Moving on to pastures new in 1995, Paul and Sally are now back with a vengeance and have restored the pub to it's former glory, re-instating many of the features to the form they were in during their previous occupancy.

Paul and Sally would like to extend a warm welcome to friends old and new, be it for a drink in the cosy bar or a home cooked meal - you are assured of an experience you will want to repeat.

   Our Bars

One of the many unique features of the Bryherstones is that it consists of many seating areas, which adds that special character to the place, as at each turn there appears to be something new to look at. Maybe you will notice a hay rack, or a brass plaque or a worn carved stone that you misssed before. Our bars include:

The Stable Bar is ideal for that romantic meal for 2, and has many original features including the old Hay rack and cobbled floor.

The Lounge Bar seats around 40 people and is ideal for larger groups and people who like a quieter environment. This is also available for private functions and buffets at off-peak times.

The Captains Table is ideal for small groups, consisting of one large table. This room is the newest addition and would be perfect for groups or parents requiring a little privacy, business meetings, office party etc.

The Games Room - providing a Pool table and Darts board! Colouring Books and crayons are also available at the bar for our younger guests.

The Lower Garden Bar with large windows leading out onto the garden and children's play area, this is the perfect place on a Summer's afternoon.
