A place of pilgrimage for beer lovers and open all day; lunchtime rolls and pies
Good Pub Guide Recommended
Why oh why did I take the car?' asked one reader regretfully after a visit to this cheerful and lively pub. Offering an extraordinary range of up to 32 quickly changing ales it's the sort of place you want to linger as the knowledgeable landlord and his helpful staff guide you through the choices. On handpump or tapped from the cask in a stillroom behind the bar - big windows reveal all - are their own beers (Fat Cat Bitter, Hell Cat, Honey Ale, Marmalade Cat and Wild Cat), as well as Crouch Vale Yakima Gold, Fullers ESB, Oakham Bishops Farewell, Timothy Taylors Landlord - and many more choices from across the country. You'll also find imported draught beers and lagers, over 50 bottled beers from around the world and 20 ciders and perries. The no-nonsense furnishings include plain scrubbed pine tables and simple solid seats, lots of brewery memorabilia, bric-a-brac and stained glass. There are tables outside.
