About the Galloper

Welcome back to the Galloping Horse! We’ve been closed a long time for rebuild and refit so we hope you like what we’ve done with the place. The new pub has several distinct areas and here’s what we had in mind in dividing it up this way. This is YOUR pub and we hope you enjoy making these newly refurbished spaces your own.

Your new Galloping Horse is a great experience for everyone.

Drink after work or meal out with family or friends?

Call and see us soon.

Shannon’s Bar

The craic, the bustle, the friendly bar staff, the Sky and BT Sports on the big screen;

Shannon’s Bar for us is about not forgetting our roots as a community drinkers pub. Hang out at the bar or have a comfortable seat at a table. Well-behaved dogs on leads can come too.

It’s the place for people to meet for a quick one on the way home or for one of many on a night out. Snacks, nibbles and pizzas can also be ordered here from 5pm-9pm in the week and from 12noon to 9pm at weekends.

NB! Under the terms of our licence, children are not allowed in Shannon’s, although they are very welcome in the rest of the pub. We are trying to have this restriction lifted – please bear with us!

Wucky’s Nook

A comfy area of the pub with curved sofas perfect for gathering round the table, feature copper lamps and classy artwork;

Wucky’s Nook is the place to relax over a long conversation and a barrista coffee, a glass of fine wine or a pint of real ale.

Our Thursday night pub quiz happens here too.

You can enjoy snacks, nibbles and pizzas from our snack menu here too of course.

Wucky’s Nook, a TV-free quiet zone away from the bustle of the bar but still in the heart of things.

The Restaurant

Just what it says on the tin!

The place to eat at a proper table; with quiet corners for an intimate dinner, upholstered booths and flexibly sized tables; for couples, for families, for groups of friends small and large.

We are now serving food daily (currently for prebooked tables only, please note); see the menu and food service times and don’t forget to check out our specials boards.

You’re welcome to use any reserved table before the booked time but please be prepared to find another seat when we need it back.
