Cask Real Ale


The micropub concept is all about keeping things small and keeping it simple! Our aim is to provide a continuously changing range of at least four real ales at all times, with a fifth on Friday nights.


Our beers are served by gravity, direct from the casks which are kept in a chilled Cask Room which can be viewed through a window.


We generally keep at least one dark beer (stout, porter, mild, or Black IPA) together with a balance of traditional bitters, golden ales, and hoppy pales. We quite often also serve unfined beers which may have a natural haze. We also stock draft cider from traditional cider makers. Recently we have also started to stock bottle conditioned glutton-free beer from Shiny Brewery in Derby.


As we are a 'free house', we are not tied to any one brewer or supplier - we try to regularly serve beers from the over 70 microbreweries that lie within 20 miles of our pub, together with more distant breweries which are not often seen locally. Since 2014, we have served over 1800 different beers from over 690 breweries.


In addition to our cask real ales and cider, we supply a small range of high quality wines, Samuel Smith's bottled fruit beers and traditional soft drinks from Fentimen's.


Please see our Facebook page and Twitter feed (below) for information on our current range of real ales.
