Our Drink Selection

Real Ales - Our Real Ales are sourced locally from Kent and Sussex:

Rother Valley Brewery (Northiam)

Established in 1993, this brewery uses hops from Hoads Farm in Sandhurst.

McCann’s Brewery (St. Michaels) 

Another local brewer, situated on Hukins Hops farm.

Harvey’s Brewery (Lewes)

The oldest independent brewery in Sussex, dating back to 1790. This family business resonates with our own values.

Lagers - Our bar offers a range of lagers, both regular and premium:

Fosters is an easy drinking lager that is perfectly balanced with moderate vanilla tasting notes – 3.7 %.

Becks, German style pilsner lager with a smooth taste and crisp finish. Four ingredients – water, barley, hops and yeast 4%.
For the younger connoisseur market, we have Cruz Campo, Heineken Extra Cold and Bierra Moretti. These are premium range lagers. Cruz campo is a Spanish Beer from Sevilla, brewed since 1904. It has light hoppy notes, and a fruity aroma, 4.4%.

Heineken Extra Cold is slightly lighter than regular Heineken, smoother and less bitter, the secret is in the name, chilled to zero, served extra in a pre-chilled/frozen glass, 5%.

Bierra Moretti is an unfiltered premium lager with a hint of sea salt, first brewed in 1860. Like Cruz campo it has hoppy fruity notes with a moderate bitterness. 4.6% Neck Oil an easy to drink craft IPA, with a light zingy taste and a hint of hops. Brewed by Beavertown, based in North London. 4.3%.

Heineken 00 on draught.

And of course we have Bottled Budweiser, & Heineken Silver, completing our lager offer.

Guiness - Draught Guinness, needs no explanation

A pint of the black stuff.  Rick, dark, creamy, smooth, with bitter sweet notes. 4.3%.   

Ciders

Inches Cider is brewed in Hereford from British apples sourced within 40 miles of the mill.  It is a lightly sparkling cider with a fresh apple aroma, perfectly balancing sweet and dry for lip smacking refreshment.  4.5%.           

Bottled Bulmer’s, both Regular and Red Berry flavour complete the cider offer.

Our Wines

Our wines come from Harvey’s in Lewes. They have a specialist wine buyer, who sources wines from independent wineries from the UK and worldwide, that align with Harvey’s ethos. We hosted a wine tasting evening and invited our customers to help us select our wine list. Once completed, Harvey’s designed and printed it. Wines are offered at 175 or 250ml or the whole bottle.

WHITE

Pinot Grigio – Il Bandiera, Italy. A real favourite with peach and apricot on the nose, leading to a fruity and zesty palate. Sauvignon Blanc – Santa Alicia, Chile. Floral and light with tropical passion fruit and hints of pineapple.

ROSE

Zinfandel Rose – Wildwood California. Gorgeous medium style with strawberries and cream notes.

RED
