ON THE BAR
Real Ale beers
We offer a range of constantly changing real ales from local breweries and further afield.
We usually have for sale 4 real ales at any one time and we aim to never have the same
real ale twice (except our one regular beer Acorn-Barnsley Bitter) once we have sold a
cask of any given beer once we aim not to ever have that beer again! We hand pick new
real ales every week with a nod to local breweries wherever possible, particularly from
Yorkshire. Last year we served 199 different beers.
Following along our ethos of thinking long and hard into what we like to see in a pub,
our beer policy is always to have a dark beer, always have at least one beer from
Yorkshire and always have at least one stronger beer, usually 4.8%+ ABV. At times
these three criteria could fit one beer! [Apologies in advance if we ever fail to forfull
these three aims, but real ale is a live product so can be unpredictable at times, but
we will always plan to stick to these criteria for our micropub]
For an up to date list of beers available we suggest you download the excellent
realalefinder we always shows our current selection as well as full descriptions.
In total we aim to sell around 11 ciders and perrys (cider made from pears) at any time.
These range from sweet to very dry as well as ciders with other flavorings usually from
other fruits, E.G. rhubarb. In a similar way to our beer policy, where we can source suitable
quality products we aim to have some products from the Yorkshire region, this is
potentially more difficult than beer as Yorkshire is some way from the traditional
cider producing areas such as Herefordshire and Somerset.
We have draught lager available from Freedom Brewery
We offer a range of gins which should satisfy most. We have a few classic branded gins as
well as a range of great flavoured gins. We do have 'proper' gin glasses as well as plenty of
We genuinely believe that there is a beer (or maybe cider) for everyone, however we
know sometimes that the beer and cider choice we have at that time may not suit all
palates,so we also offer a number of other drinks including a small range of wines, these
are our current range of wines;
Californian White Zinfandel (Rose)
Merlot & Shiraz
We also offer mini bottles of Prosecco
