Welcome

Anthony and Faith welcome you to the John Bunyan, a real family run country pub set in a picturesque location nestled in woodland on the edge of the new Heartwood forest.  The pub was named after John Bunyan, a local preacher who wrote Pilgrims Progress and who preached and occasionally lodged in the cottage, the ruins of which are near the pub.

Welcome back to “normality” . So the rules are over, we can now go back to  ordering at the bar so no more phoning or apps. We can’t wait to welcome you all back to normal.Booking highly recommended.walk ins welcome too.

The pub has free wifi , a large outdoor seating area and large car park with plenty of grassed area for children to play on. The pub itself is adorned with over 700 plates and jugs and offers a selection of pub games including darts and shove halfpenny. We welcome walkers, cyclists, dog walkers and horse-riders. In winter a real log fire makes it very cosy. We also cater for all occasions including weddings, christenings, birthdays.
