When we opened in 1985 most of our bottled beer came from over seas, but in recent years there has been a huge increase in the availability of quality British bottled beers and these now take up more than half of the 250 or so beers in our range. The remainder are principally from Germany, Belgium and the rest of Europe. Cask conditioned beers are also available at very competitive prices. Timothy Taylor's Landlord has been ever present from the outset, other beers vary on a regular basis. We have featured in CAMRA'S 'Good Beer Guide' every year from 1991 to 2000, attracting appreciative customers from all over the country.
