Our house beers are from the crack team at West Berkshire Brewery, located just up the road from Swindon, these guys brew some of the most exciting award winning beers around.Always available on keg is their Renegade Lager and India Session Ale, and they also supply us with their multi-award winning cask beer “Good Old Boy” as well. We work closely with these guys and will also be running their specials when the opportunity arises.
The undiscovered treasure can be found on our guest lines, and in our fridges where you will see a hand picked, always rotating selection of awesome beers from the best and most exciting breweries in the world including most of the the top rated UK breweries according to Untappd (the likes of Neon Raptor, Alpha Delta, Pollys Brew Co, Northern Monk, Magic Rock, Deya Brewing, Verdant, Cloudwater and a whole host of other top rated (for good reason) brewers).

Now, cocktails have taken a bit of a reputation battering in the last 20 years – all those sickly sweet fishbowls getting downed on a Saturday night in some seaside dive. Well we are claiming back their crown as the slick, suave and sophisticated drinks that they are. Think more Mad Men than TOWIE. There are no Slippery Nipple’s to be seen on our menu’s, just a classic selection including “proper” Martini’s, Old Fashioned’s and Manhattan’s. There are also our specials – the Build Your Own Bloody Mary bar and the Absinthe Fountain. Check out the selection on our cocktail menu.
We want the finest wines available to humanity. And we want them here, and we want them now! – Withnail (Withnail & I)
Well Mr Withnail, you are in the right place for a change. We have a great selection of wines available, in all three colours (plus fizzy ones) and from all over the world. We highly recommend the Los Intocables Malbec and the Waipara Valley Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc in particular.

When considered at its most basic, Gin is just a spirit that’s flavoured with juniper. But behind that simple facade lies one of the world’s most complex and best-loved spirits, with a history that spans hundreds of years and reaches back to the dawn of distillation.
But, as with most of these things, it is a drink that has fallen foul of big business and mass production techniques and consequently the market is flooded with a lot of very average spirit. So we have carefully selected a range of gin that tend to be handcrafted, small batch products.
