In line with current guidance, we are now fully open as before.
However while we are not insisting upon masks, distancing or sanitising for customers, we are still doing all of those things ourselves and we still encourage visitors to consider doing so themselves for the sake of others’ comfort.
Customers’ safety and comfort is paramount to us and we will continue to ensure we are taking all steps reasonably practicable to prevent further spread of Covid.
Please, continue to use good common sense and stay home if you are feeling unwell, are symptomatic or are awaiting the results of a test!
Alex, Ian and Vard,
The Who’d A Team.
In early September 2019, the “Who'd A Thought It” started another chapter in its long history, as father and son (or rather son and father!) Alex and Ian took over the tenancy.
The Who'd A is at heart a traditional village pub, dating back to the eighteenth century. The visitor will not take long to determine the theme of the decor, which is firmly rooted in meat and its journey from hoof to table.
The menus change regularly to provide variety to the frequent diner and to take advantage of seasonal ingredients. The full menu runs throughout the day, with Lunch also offering a lighter Sandwich Menu. The children's menu is also available on request to cater for more junior visitors.
All the menus can be found below!
Alex has been a chef for more than a decade, mostly in this area, so knows where to get the best local food and how to prepare it and this is at the heart of his menus. The approach is to provide the sort of fare that customers expect at a pub, and at a reasonable price as well as to offer the slightly more adventurous diner something from the specials board which may tempt the palate.
Ian's background is IT, but he has run bars in the past and this is the fulfilment of a long-held idea that a pub would be a good retirement. His experience of pubs, though far from continuous, dates back to the Queen's Silver Jubilee.
Rounding out the family takeover is Alex's brother Christopher, aka ‘Vard’. He also has run pubs over several years, and being a petrolhead will get very excited if he discovers someone to talk motorbikes or Land Rovers with.
We look forward to welcoming you to The Who’d A!
