TRADITIONAL ALES & BEER
Real Ales and beer
As brilliant an institution as the Great British pub itself, and undoubtedly the star of this well-stocked bar. Every pint of our real ales is lovingly kept and perfectly poured whether accompanying a plate of freshly cooked pub-food in bar lounge, or a summer’s afternoon spent in our beer garden.
We have a wide range of real ales from a variety of sources that we offer. You will find that we change our range frequently and you will be able to keep track of it all here.
Butcombe Bitter (abv: 4.0%)
Amber & Malty
4.0% ABV The West Country’s favourite beer derives from pure Mendip Spring Water…notably bitter, clean tasting, refreshingly dry and distinctive. Made with 100% best Maris Otter malt (the Rolls Royce of malts), together with a blend of (never divulged) English hop varieties…Butcombe Bitter is a moreish Mendip masterpiece!
Local Real Ale PG Steam (abv: 3.9%)
Local Ale brewed in Hewish. This multi award winning local ale is one of our most popular real ales. This complex , multi layered ale has a floral hop aroma with medium -bodied hop, bitter taste with some fruit and sweetness. A real winner!
Wine for all occasions
From easy-going to adventurous, well-rounded to robust, our carefully compiled wine list befits any mood, occasion or indeed dish from our seasonal menu. For something special, try a bottle of crisp Pinot Grigio (Verona, Italy), or a deliciously soft and juicy Cotes Du Rhone (Louis Bernard, Rhone).
Fancy something different? We also offer a variety of ciders and an extensive selection of spirits. As for our non-alcoholic options, choose from a selection of imaginative soft drinks and finest pressed fruit juices, for adults as well as younger diners, plus we serve freshly brewed coffee all day.
