We have five real ales, three permanent ales—The Hoard, from Backyard Brewhouse in Walsall, Tawny Owl from Cotleigh Brewery in Somerset, and Greene King’s Abbot Ale. We also have two guest ales which change regularly.

As if that weren’t enough, we offer a 20p-per-pint discount on these beers to CAMRA members and are Cask Marque accredited

We also have a frequently-updated selection of excellent wines. Our lagers include Peroni, Estrella, Pravha and Carling. And we also serve Guinness Extra Cold and Thatcher’s Cider, alongside a range of bottled lagers, ciders and craft beers, and for the discerning gin drinkers out there we have a selection of over twenty gins!
