At The Bealey we want you to feel right at home. The charm of a great pub is embodied in the comfort of it. An uncomfortable pub is like a shoe that doesn’t fit – you can’t wait to get out of it. That is why we try to go out of our way to make you feel at home. If there is anything we can do to make your time with us more enjoyable, please just ask.
