Craft Beer & Cider
We carry an amazing, ever changing range of craft beer and cider sourced both from our own region and from across the world.
Our house beers are from the crack team at Renegade Brewery, located just up the road from Swindon, these guys brew some of the most exciting award winning beers around. Always available on tap is their Craft Lager and West Coast Pale Ale. We work closely with this lot and will also be running their pilot brews and any other exciting, cutting edge beers when the opportunity arises
You will find a rotating selection of awesome beers and a cider on our other taps – please see the on the bar menu. These could be from anywhere but will always be hand-picked from small, craft producers and be among the best and most exciting available. No mainstream nonsense at The Tuppenny!
We also have a small but perfect range of cask beers from our friends at West Berkshire Brewery, led by classic best bitter Good Old Boy, a gold medal winning beer that is representing the region at the 2017 Supreme Champion Beer of Britain award.
Don’t forget, any of our draught beers and ciders are available to take home in one of our amazingly cool Growlers! Check out these great re-usable bottles here.
We also carry an unrivaled range of beer and cider in our fridges in both cans and bottles. Again, this ever changing selection boasts some of the most highly regarded brews in the world. Check out what we currently have available in our in the fridges menu.
If you are ever unsure about a beer or don’t know what to drink, ask our friendly staff, they will be happy to talk you through the selection and even let you try a sample.
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. Oh, and of course the Bond classic Martini – The Vesper.
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 Pablo Y Walter Malbec and the Cloud Factory 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. Take our Brooklyn Gin for example, unlike mass-produced factory gins, they do everything by hand. It takes more time and effort, but you can taste the difference. They use one Christian Carl copper pot still with each batch yielding just 300 bottles of gin through a three day process. They use locally sourced fruit (100% fresh citrus peels – never frozen or dried and hand-cracked juniper, giving a more vibrant drink) and a base spirit made from 100% American corn that is sourced from small farms. It is a gin good enough to drink on its own. Or as part of our classic Martini!
