Our Drinks

 

We have a wide selection of ales which we regularly change (albeit Langport Bitter, Independence and Butcombe seem to have acquired squatter’s rights on the bar). We pour arguably the best pint of Guinness this side of St James Gate.

We also stock a range of lagers.

It wouldn’t be Somerset if we didn’t stock a range of ciders be they sweet, dry, mainstream or craft.  The first barrel of Mallets, Cider of the Gods was served here.

Ask at the bar about our spirit’s selection (18 types of gin and counting – did we mention we are small?) or to see our wine list.

We also have a wide ranging selection of bottled beers, ciders and soft drinks.
