  • Real Ales

    Real Ales

    As an independent free house, we can offer a range of specialist and traditional craft beers & ales.
    We typically have three personally-selected real ales on tap - and we ensure they are ever-changing!
    The West Country is home to many great independent breweries, so we are spoilt for choice! And we sometimes have a guest ale from 'up country' too.
    Of course we also stock a great range of local and imported bottled beers.
  • Traditional Bar

    Traditional Bar

    Of course, we have everything else you'd expect from a village pub too!
    Lagers and ciders on tap and bottled, select wines to suit pallet and budget - by the glass or bottle, spirits, including our extensive gin menu, mixers and a lovely range of flavoursome, non-alcoholic bottled drinks.
  • West Country Vodka

    West Country Vodka

    We offer a range of vodkas, including Black Cow Vodka, made in West Dorset.
    Black Cow is the world's only pure milk vodka!
    It is made entirely of whey from grass-grazed cow's milk. The whey is fermented by a special yeast, distilled and then filtered through coconut-shell charcoal, producing an exceptionally smooth vodka with a unique creamy character.
  • Range of Gins

    Range of Gins

    Gin-lovers will enjoy our extensive gin menu, including the renowned Plymouth Gin which is produced at the historic Black Friars Distillery.
    Plymouth Gin was traditionally popular with the Royal Navy, being mixed with tonic water for the anti-malarial properties of quinine - the original gin and tonic!
  • Cocktails

    Cocktails

    There's an exciting range of cocktails too!
  • Soft Drinks

    Soft Drinks

    We have specially selected an extensive range of non-alcoholic soft drinks.
