See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

Large pub built in 1963, named after Frank Whittle, inventor of the turbojet engine. Reopened in November 2013 after a £260,000 refurbishment which saw the two rooms redecorated and knocked through to create one large L-shape. New furniture, lighting and flooring was added to give a contemporary, light and airy feel. The former main bar/lounge is now a comfortable dining area, and the function room is now for sports, with live matches on several screens, a pool table and dartboards. The pub was also renamed simply'The Whittle'. Good value pub grub is available from 12-2.30 and 5-8 Monday-Friday, and 12-8 Saturday and Sunday. The evening entertainment includes darts and pool leagues, bingo, dominoes, Sunday quiz and a disco Friday and Saturday.
