Fantastic choice of craft beers and real ales. Also a nice friendly atmosphere and good knowledgable staff. The draft Weissbier was delicious.

Not sure why Trip Advisor has this in the restaurant section. It is an excellent bar with it's own Micro Brewery. Real fire, great atmosphere and superb selection of beers. They don't do food (other than great Pork Scratchings), but they are very happy to...More

We only popped in for a quick pre-dinner pint but we were served cloudy beer - didn't complain because my wife hates a fuss so just didn't bother drinking it. Noticed that all three cask ales being served were cloudy. Bit surprising for a brewwhouse...More

Hello - sorry I only just saw this. You should have talked to us. Many of the beers we serve are vegan ( and everything we grew ourselves). - this means they do not go through the finnings process - hence they are not clear....More
