Doom Bar (4.0%)
Doom Bar is inspired by its namesake, the treacherous sandbank at the mouth of the Camel Estuary near Sharps' home at Rock. Accomplished and precise, Doom Bar is the epitomy of consistency, balance and moreish appeal and is now the UK's no.1 selling cask beer.
Deep golden in colour, Atlantic has a vibrant fruity aroma redolent of lime zest to mango. The flavour is harmonious balance of barley sugar and grapefruit with a refreshingly crisp citrus linger.
6X is the jewel in Wadworth’s crown. Our most popular beer, the one which made us famous, and the one that won United Kingdom's Gold at this year's World Beer Awards! It has been in production for nearly 100 years and we still use the original recipe, expertly brewed in our Victorian brewery in the West Country.
We serve seasonal guest ales throughout the year. Please ask our friendly staff for more details.
Our classic, golden Amstel Beer, with its very distinctive and mildly bitter taste, has over the years become well known beyond the borders of its native country.
A bottom fermented beer with a golden colour. This colouring is a result of the type of malt used in brewing. The best raw materials are used to make Birra Moretti, as well as a special blend of high quality hops that gives it a unique taste and fragrance, enhancing its perfectly balanced bitter taste.
Carling Lager (4.0%)
The UK’s No.1 Lager, brewed with 100% British barley. It’s perfectly balanced, with a great refreshing taste.
A pleasant, fruity, lighter-styled quaffing lager A light-coloured lager style, it presents full malt character with a balanced clean hop bitterness. Combined with a slightly hoppy, but yeasty/malty nose, Foster's lager is a full bodied beer with excellent drinkability.
Brewing beer is a 100% natural process. Heineken beer is made from the purest ingredients. The resin from the female hop flower cones is used to help balance the sweetness of the barley with a refreshing bitterness.
Bulmer's Original (4.5%)
Well-balanced and medium-sweet flavour of Bulmer’s Original Cider.
Thatchers Gold (4.8%)
A medium dry golden cider, with a smooth and refreshing taste. Crafted from a blend of our favourite apples including Dabinett, Porters Perfection and Harry Masters Jersey.
Thatchers Haze (4.5%)
Thatchers Haze is a cloudy premium cider bursting with apple flavour. Crafted with Discovery, Falstaff, Gala and Jonagold eating apples to create its crisp sweet finish. It is the juice of the Jonagold apple that brings a naturally cloudy appearance to this chilled cider.
Strongbow Dark Fruit (4.0%)
Crisp Strongbow cut with a blend of dark fruit Harnessing the crisp, masculine refreshment of Strongbow Original, Strongbow Dark Fruit offers an easy-drinking combination of Strongbow cider, cut with black currant and blackberry juices.

They willingly volunteered the information that they have only been there eight weeks and are still finding their way in various respects and had sensibly decided to not go for a full house on Christmas Day. I can`t help admiring a policy of keeping it small in order to get it right rather than to go for greed beyond capabilities and ruin diner’s expectations – as many places probably would.
Newly redecorated inside and out with the restaurant area having nicely presented festive tablecloth style and a nice, informal atmosphere with the owners being hands on and always around. The food was lovely. Nicely presented, generous portions, properly cooked and very tasty. Starters and desserts were great but the main course took the traditional pub roast to another level. My wife had Lamb and I had Turkey but we swapped a little so that we could try both and had to agree that it was really very good and in a different league to most places.
To have got off to such a good start is to their credit and I don`t think it will be long before their collective abilities make this a sought after place to go to for good food. I can see Sunday lunchtimes becoming very busy here.
New Management, New Menu, Brilliant Pub Food
We all had different main meals, all delicious and very generous portions, unfortunately too full to enjoy their homemade puds!
All in all we had a very warm welcome from Leo & Angie and they were very attentive and looked after us well which was very much appreciated.
Good luck to you both for a successful year and we too agree it will soon be the best pub in the area!
