See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
A craft beer house, 3 cask handpumps plus plenty of craft keg (up to 14 taps) which did have its own on-site brewery but this ceased operations some time ago. Following a period when all cask beers disappeared, real ale was restored in November 2015 from an ever changing list of breweries both local and national.
There is a very impressive list of bottle beers including some fine beers from Belgium. Wide food selection has been introduced, see website for full details. As with an increasing number of pubs, the use of pumpclips has been dropped and the beers on sale are listed on a large board.
