We pride ourselves on the range and quality of our real ales, and have attained a listing in The Good Beer Guide and Cask Marque 'Recommended' status. We usually have up to five ales on tap, with more at busy times and during our beer festivals. You can choose from two or three 'regulars' and a selection from our guest ale rotation, giving a wide range of strength and character.
Note: Due to the nature of real ale, all ales may not be available at all times.
