Celebration of Porters, Stouts, Dark & Old Ales …

January & February 2018

… No, not an appreciation of luggage handling staff, but the 7th annual Celebration of these fabulous beer styles – perfect for the winter season.

Dating from 1455 and owned by the National Trust we pride ourselves on being a real ale pub of excellence in a unique setting. The bar team have worked hard to source the best of these fine ales from across the country for this specialist annual celebration and we will be stocking up some mouth-watering examples over the next few weeks. But, be warned, just one cask of each so we’ll need to be quick to avoid missing out – see beer menu here.

Our landlord George Jenkinson says “I love these ales which are wonderful to sup by the fire on a cold winter’s day. We have some exceptional examples for our customers to enjoy. We have had an extraordinarily enjoyable time short-listing, deliberating and finally hand-picking each of the beers.”

We see them as some of the best examples of the brewer’s art and whether you like porters, stouts, old or dark ales, we are confident you’ll find something to your taste. Even if you’ve never tasted these beer styles before, you can enjoy anything from a traditional stout to an Export India Porter.

We look forward to welcoming you …. cheers!
