Our 1970's Bar and Restaurant has been bought into 2017 with a mix of old and new. Its Autumnal colours make it warm and cosy. Two yellow brick fire places hosting log and coal burners for the cold Winter days and air conditioning for the Summer ones makes Hardy's Bar & Grill the place to be any time of year. The one level entrance and over sized toilet facilities make it easily accessible for wheel chair users as well as offering full baby changing facilities. We now have a dart board which reflects our traditional Pub heritage. The new restaurant area with bi-fold seperation doors is open and available to book for your private function. If you want music we recommend our Resident DJ. DJ Dan. Please call our Team if you want to book or need further information. If you have special dietary requirements we are here to help. We recommend that you always book a restaurant reservation.
