Speaking to the YEP, a staff member explained:

"Thankfully it is just in the garden but it is hard to tell how bad it is at the minute." he said.

"The fence is flailing in the wind and the benches are floating in the water but it's just a waiting at the minute. We will have to wait until the water goes down to truly know the damage."

Despite the flooding, the pub remains open for business.
