Dead Pony Club 3.8% ABV
From Brewdog and inspired by US-style pale ales. With a toasted, malt-base, washing tropical fruit, floral garlands and spicy undertones all over your palate. Dead Pony is a low amplitude, high voltage hop hit; California dreaming for the craft beer generation.
East Coast IPA
From Greene King, this hand crafted brew combines the heady aroma of American hops with the refreshment of traditional British ales. Cold, gold and insanely drinkable. Amarillo in the copper and as a late hop gives East Coast IPA its citrus fruits, floral and spicy notes.
From Adnams Southwold. Made with Mosaic hops, this pale blonde has bags of personality with bold mango, peach, lemon and pine flavours and a dry hoppy finish. Brewed with pale ale malt, some lager malt and a touch of light Cara.
A Czech pilsner style beer. The pleasantly smooth taste and well-rounded flavour rewards your palate with a soft malty flavour, before finishing off with gentle bitterness. Staropramen lager is a genuine legend of Prague.
The UK’s number 1 Spanish lager, it is a pilsner style lager, golden in colour, sparkling with a generous white creamy head. The taste is full bodied with a refreshing balance of bitterness from the hops and sweetness from the malt.
Truly an international brand served in 140 countries worldwide. A blonde, crystal clear pilsner style lager with a flavour of hops, grains, pine needles and Danish summer apples and a harmoniously balanced taste.
A light-coloured lager style, it presents full malt character with a balanced clean hop bitterness. Combined with a slightly hoppy, but yeasty/malty nose, Foster’s lager is a full bodied beer with excellent drinkability.
From Mighty Oak Brewery. A wonderfully mellow, nutty, dark mild. Brewed using Maris Otter Pale, Crystal and Black malts and gently hopped with Challenger.

From Woodforde’s Brewery. A powerful malty beer with great depth of flavour and an appealing hoppy aftertaste. Rich and floral aromas, sweet Norfolk malts and a burst of Citrus hops embody this mouth-watering premium beer.
Pale Ale with a good assertive pithy bitterness and a malty backbone. It is brewed using Rye, Citra and a blend of other American hop varieties to create a great citrus flavour.
From Wychwood Brewery. Traditionally craft brewed with chocolate and crystal malts and a blend of Styrian, Goldings and Fuggles hops to produce a full-bodied ruby beer that delivers a delicious chocolate toffee flavour.
From Woodforde’s Brewery. A classic aromatic golden ale brewed using carefully selected pale and lightly roasted malts, in combination with American and Slovenian aroma hops to tantalise the palate.
From Sharp’s Brewery. A Cornish amber ale with an enticing aroma of resinous hop, sweet malt and delicate roasted notes. The mouth feel is a balanced, complex blend of succulent dried fruit, lightly roasted malt and a subtle yet assertive bitterness. Our most popular ale!
A Suffolk cider, created to celebrate 275 years of cider making by 8th generation brothers Barry and Henry Chevallier Guild. Fruity, dry, racy, thirst-quenching, lip-smacking.
