Latest News at the OKH





We have put together a calendar of events for 2018 which we will share with you in full - but you can be assured that we will be seeing the return of the annual events including The Pumpkin Show, Real Ale Festival, Sausage and Cider Festival and the Gin, Jazz and Tapas Festival!  Watch this space!


The Pumpkin Show was a massive success in October, raising funds for Myeloma UK.  Percy the pumpkin (if a little deflated) was in attendance and the pub was heaving the whole Sunday - it was simply awesome to see you all.  We will confirm the final monies raised soon, we are still fundraising via our squaresboard and totalling the Pumpkin Ale income etc; early signs are that we raised well over £3,000 on the auction alone which was just brilliant and illustrates the generosity of our customers in helping the charity. 

The turnout for the Pumpkin carving was overwhelming, as was the size of the biggest pumpkin (which was kindly donated by its owner Mark and raised £75 for the charity at auction!!)

A massive thank you to every single person who attended, donated, carved, cooked, bid, drank and ate on Sunday 22nd - here's to next year.  For more info on the charity, visit


Our Christmas menu is now available, pop in to the pub and collect a form - please note we ask for a £5 deposit per person along with your menu choices - hurry as tables are being snapped up fast!
