A very warm welcome to

The Whittington Arms

The Whitt as the pub is locally known, has occupied the village of Tonna for decades. It has been aesthetically extended over the years, and once was home to a traditional skittle alley. We are a family run business, operating a good honest, traditional community pub with a traditional freshly served food menu, served 7 days a week. (Carvery Only on a Sunday)
All our meat and produce is locally sourced within a 15 mile radius of the pub!

We are open 7 days a week from 12 noon. The original part of the building started its life centuries ago, and was developed into a pub over the years. The pub has a large car park, and we welcome all pre-booked coach parties.

We are pleased to accept all major Credit & Debit Cards (except American Express).

  • Alcohol may be mans worse enemy, but the bible says - Love your enemy!
  • Wine is bottled poetry
  • It only takes one to get me drunk, the problem is, I'm not sure if its the 8th or 9th!
  • When I read about the evils of drinking, I gave up reading!
  • "Beer" - A temporary solution to everything!
  • A drunken mans words, are a sober mans thoughts!
