Our Drinks

Our Real Ales and Traditional Ciders

We don’t have a policy of running “permanent” ales here.  What we like to do instead is to rotate guest ales until we find one which is particularly popular and give it a run on the bar.  What we always do, though, is try to ensure that we always offer a proper variety of strengths, styles and colours to ensure there will be something on the bar for everybody.  

We are very keen to support local brewers and there will always be a “locale” beer on our bar.  However, we also appreciate that there are lovely beers brewed all over the UK and we like to offer the very best of those alongside the local brews.

We attempt to stock the very best quality ales and keep them in perfect condition and this was borne out by our most recent Cask Marque visit, in which we achieved 5 out of 5 on all six of our ales.

We are passionate about our ales and promote the “try before you buy” policy.  Our staff are all knowledgeable and will be keen to talk you through our range and ensure you get to drink a beer you will really enjoy.

We are also keen on real ciders and, as well as offering two lovely keg versions, we also pour two still ciders direct from the cask in the cellar behind the bar.  You will find our current selection at the end of the list of ales.


Lagers



We offer a wide choice of lagers here, some which are brewed in the UK and some which are brewed in their country of origin. We sell Fosters and Amstel for those who like a "session" lager, Heineken (brewed to the original Dutch recipe), and the lovely imported Italian lager Birra Moretti. We also serve the fantastically popular Spanish lager Cruzcampo. 

Craft Keg



We serve both Beavertown Neck oil and Gamma Ray on our craft keg pump but we are putting in place a system whereby we will be able to rotate our craft keg beers to include those from local breweries. Watch this space!


Ciders


Stowford Press Weston's Cider 4.5% 
Stowford Press is a sparkling medium dry cider which has built its popularity on its premium taste and quality.

Hogs Back Hazy Hog 5.0%
A slightly cloudy and delightfully fruity keg cider. Made by one of the best cider makers in the West Country for Hogs Back, this is very nice indeed.

Crafty One

Crafty

The brewery has completely rebuilt this beer and what a wonderful job they have done! Gone is the overpowering Sorace Ace hop which made it taste of Camembert and now the beer has a lemony freshness about it and a great bitter backbone. Well done our friends in Dunsfold. IN THE CELLAR

Revival - Evening Star

Downlands

Having shared many beers with one of the founders of Dark Star brewery (which started its life at the Evening Star in Brighton), our man at Downlands managed to extract the original recipe for their American Pale Ale from him. This beer is a tribute to the man, the brewery which was and, of course, to the beer. IN THE CELLAR

Dangerous Grounds

Downlands

A wonderfully intense coffee porter with hints of cardamon in the background. Rich sweetness balance the dry coffee flavours which makes this beer even more dangerous than the silly name suggests. NOW POURING

Sussex Best

Harveys

A classic best bitter, using only the finest ingredients and brewed with an ancient yeast strain which gives the beer immediate recognition. Brown, slightly sweet and enormously popular. NOW POURING

Eldorado

Crafty

We really like this brewery's Crafty One and this is a different version of that beer. By dry-hopping with the Eldorado hop they have added a gentle fruitiness to the beer and it is thoroughly delicious. IN THE CELLAR
