Our ‘Cask Marque’ approved cellar allows us to stock and offer up to 5 local real ales from brewers such asﾠ Bollington, Thornbridge, Abbeydale, Howard Town, Spitting Feathers, Tweed along with Marstons which change on a regular basis.

All the cask ales are delivered using traditional in-bar hand pulls with water cooling from cellar to pump to ensure a consistent temperature.
All our food is freshly prepared and predominately British,not forgetting the modern twist. Where possible, we use locally sourced ingredients including British Saddleback Pigs reared in Rowarth.
