A selection of cask beers from the finest local and national brewers.

Unlike keg beers, most cask beers require a settling time before they can be dispensed in order to further condition the beer inside. This is usually between 24 and 48 hours depending on the beer. These are known as ‘live’ beers.

Luckilly, the majority of local brewers are able to supply ‘bright’ beers which are ready to serve. These have been settled and conditioned at the brewery and then poured into casks ready to serve.

Most beers listed below are available in Firkins (9 gallon / approx 70 pints) as either ‘live’ or ‘bright beers, 4.5 gallon pins, 10 litre mini-pins and some as 5 litre mini-kegs.

All cask quotes include a wooden stillage, tap and spiles.

Bright casks will be supplied unless requested.

  • Junction 6 ALC 4.2% VOL

    Ingredients: Water, Barley, Wheat, Hops, Yeast. Contains gluten. The stage was set for the biggest festival of the year… Godstoneberry. But just as doors were about to open, it dawned on Will. “The Junction 6! We’ve forgotten it!” he shrieked. “It’s the headline act’s favourite beer and they’re fast approaching on the M25. They’ll never go on stage without it!” With Godstoneberry at risk, Will knew he had to act. Quick as a flash, he hopped into his Willmobile and made it back in the nick of time. His reward? The official title of William the Saviour (of Godstoneberry) and a tithe of free beer at the taproom every Friday.

Trenchman was shot by none other than the HMRC. Injured and quickly deteriorating, he staggered as far as the Fox and Hounds, where he eventually died. Buried at St Nicholas’ church, he’s been haunting the pub ever since…
