Our Beer Range



Ale is at the heart of any English Pub, and we pride ourselves on the quality and range of our traditional cask ales, reflected in the fact that we have been featured in every edition of the CAMRA Good Beer Guide since 1989. We stock at least seven real ales on hand pump at any given time, providing a wide choice for the connoisseur of British beer.

CURRENT ALES at  2nd January 2019

Unlike many other real ale pubs, we don't constantly change our beer range. We believe in quality and stability, stocking the best, rather than constantly trying out different beers only to find a few days later it's not made any longer or the brewery has gone never to return.
