A warm welcome!

Was out walking my dog, and passed The Heritage along my route. I heard nice music, and chattering, so I looked inside, to see if anyone I knew was in there. The hosts- Melvin & Margaret, immediately invited me inside for a drink, with my boxer dog, Freddy, who absolutely loved all the attention from customers in there, who were all very friendly and welcoming. It’s not often a girl can go somewhere on her own for a drink, and feel comfortable, but I did. I thoroughly enjoyed the unusual drinks on offer, and I think I was a little bit greedy with the spiced cider- which is my favourite. Wonderful, friendly atmosphere, superb service, unusual drinks, a clean toilet, and Margaret even sorted Freddy out with a couple of bowls of water.
Brilliant little local business, they do lots of live music here too- well worth popping in.

Not what it used to be!
Jun 2019 • Couples
Until a recent visit to the heritage I considered it to be one of the best micropubs around, it saddens me to say this is not the case now, the pub has now succumbed to selling canned and bottled mass produced beers, and only a small selection of locally produced beer from the keg, the mobile phone use has crept in and the atmosphere of what was once a proper micropub has suffered, the wine sold is of a very poor quality but at hyped pub prices, I just hope it returns to the values it had on opening.

The management is sorry to hear you found us wanting on your last visit. We sell a small selection of canned and bottled bears because our wonderful regular customers asked for more choice. since the Halfway Houses pub, over the road closed, people have only one choice of pub so we introduced a wider range, including spirits, to cater for more tastes. The selection of beers varies depending on the day because we know that on quiet days, we will end up wasting some of our stunning real ales, and this will never do. Our policy on the use of phones has not changed at all. We have always allowed people to text, but ask them to step outside if making or taking calls. We sell the same wines, but if you found the wine wanting, I am sure we would have changed it for you. Hyped pub prices? We are still the cheapest pub around and reluctantly put up prices when our suppliers do. We look forward to your next visit with interest. Our new customers always comment on the lovely atmosphere in the pub.

Friendly atmosphere
Jul 2019 • Family
Always a friendly and warm welcome from Melvin, Margaret and staff. Customers also make you feel welcomed “ come as a stranger leave as a friend” Great fun with the quiz night on Tuesdays and many different live music acts on Sunday evenings. The vinyl appreciation evenings are good fun.
A variety of ales, ciders, wine, Prosecco and Mead are available as well as spirits & soft drinks all served with a smile and a recommendation to try new ones.
Well worth a visit

The atmosphere was very welcoming, as I was up for the weekend from London.
Everyone was so welcoming and friendly,
