The Team

Drink Menu

We currently have 4 regular beers:

Black Sheep's Best Bitter - A classic well-hopped and beautifully balanced beer, with a deeply satisying and refreshing taste that is followed by a distinctively dry and long bitter finish.
Fuller's London Pride - Rich, smooth and elegant on the palate, it draws to a clean, satisfying finish with beautifully balanced bitterness.
St Austell's Tribute - light, hoppy, zesty, easy to drink and consistently delicious. The zesty orange and grapefruit flavours are balanced with biscuit malt for this superb Cornish classic.

We also have 2 changing guest that can be found on our FaceBook Page.
and our other selection of draught ales,

Bank's Mild - A glorious balance of malty biscuity flavours, with a subtle hint of bitterness. A subtle but perceptible burnt note.
Marston's Oyster Stout - Hints of chocolate, coffee and sweet treacle flavours and yet quite smooth and clean-tasting.
Pilsner Urquell - Earthy, fresh bread aroma with hints of hops and honeysuckle. Subtle malty sweetness with caramel tones with a pleasing bitterness to finish.
Kaltenberg - Light and sparklingly refreshing with toned-down bitterness, and rich foam.

We also have 3 regular sparkling ciders and 5 traditional ciders,

Thatchers Gold - A medium, refreshing cider with a smooth appley taste.
Thatchers Haze - A Sweet, cloudy premium cider bursting with apple flavour with a crisp sweet finish.
Aspall's Suffolk Draught Cyder - A medium dry, fruity, racy, thirst-quenching, lip-smacking.

Thatchers Stan's Big Apple - A medium dry, this still cider bursts with apple flavours and has a depth of character.
Thatchers Stan's Traditional - A Medium dry, mellow, naturally hazy, smooth cider.
Thatchers Stan's Cheddar Valley - A medium dry, with its distinctive orange hues, this smooth, robust, naturally cloudy cider is a Somerset tradition.
Weston's Rosie's Pig - A medium dry, easy drinking cloudy cider with a fresh apple flavour with hints of citrus and spice.
Weston's Old Rosie - A medium dry, balance of sweetness and acidity, to complement the bitterness of traditional cider apples.

We do offer more ciders but they are always changing, please check our FaceBook Page,
for an up to date list.
