Friday 12th September 2014: In The Cellar, Private Bookings…


We’ve just taken delivery from one of our more journeyed suppliers with our cellar now bursting with hops and malts from North of the Watford Gap.

Keep an eye on the board for Argyll’s Fyne Jarl (single hopped with Citra) and exclusive beers from new Hexham brewery, Bondgate. Their Tigerfish IPA is brewed to an authentic recipe from 1868, so sure to be interesting.

Other breweries to sample include the Lake District’s Hawkshead Brewery, the Highlands’ Cromarty Brewery (great to have a red back as Autumn looms) and Cumbria’s Dent Brewery. Jarrow’s Rivet Catcher makes a welcome return too!

Old favourites return, with Siren soon to be back on keg with their 10 Finger Discount, while Oliver’s makes a welcome return to our cider lines with the 3 Counties Perry and the Shezam.


The pub is now available for bespoke private bookings during Monday to Thursday daytimes. Perfect for (whisper it) Christmas parties. We can discuss food and drink packages to suit you.

If you’re interested, give General Manager, Tom, an email at tom.

We continue to take public bookings in the evenings for food and drink also!
