we’d be happy to look after you

Hey, thanks for checking in. We are so proud to be servicing our loyal and regular customers from our surrounding areas. We love to see you pop in some day so if you’re ever hungry or thirsty (or both) we’d be happy to look after you.

the pub

We’re a local in the true sense of the word. For a long time, Buglers has been a place for locals and outsiders to get together, have a drink and catch up. In 200 years, that’s never changed.

Providing a huge selection of drink to suit everyone to delicious freshly cooked food, our pub is a place to relax, unwind and catch up with friends. We accommodate families, groups and individuals and have areas to suit everyone. The pub has a very special atmosphere and an ethos of inclusion delivering an unrivalled service to the surrounding community. 

Meeting Place by day

Out the back of Buglers, you will find The Meeting Place. A unique secluded haven, different and unseen locally.

By day, The Meeting Place is a Rustic, barista coffee dock, serving a bespoke blend of coffees, teas, fresh bakes and pastries, gourmet Toasties and lots more tasty bites.

We also do fresh Rotisserie chickens, cooked daily and available on our menu. We include our fresh Rotisserie  chickens on a huge amount of our in-house dishes, or if you’re just not feeling like cooking a meal, they’re also available for take away on their own or as a meal.

Meeting Place by night

By night, The Meeting Place is transformed into a continental style, modern outdoor food spot. Our full menu is available to order outside, be it small bits to snack on, or a nice big meal to fill you up. The experience is something you may expect in a city square in a European town. Though it’s an outdoor space, we have you covered for the colder evenings with powerful heaters and to top it off, a great atmosphere with some tasty food and delicious drinks to wash it all down

Weekend Market

Local people, local produce

Over the coming weeks, we will be introducing a weekend market where we will give local vendors the opportunity to sell and promote their produce or products out the back at Buglers.

If you are a local business and interested in selling in our market, please drop us a mail at
