Exmoor Ale

ABV 3.8%

This light chestnut-brown session beer has a fresh, grainy, biscuity nose with a hint of fresh citrus fruit in the background. The refreshing finish is a Challenger hop-driven bittersweetness with a lingering dryness.


Fullers (Gales) HSB

ABV 4.8%

HSB is brewed with the finest malt and hops for a well-balanced character. It is full bodied and silky textured, with a hint of Dundee cake that leads to a rich, fruity taste and a silky smooth finish.

Arundel Sussex IPA

ABV 4.5%

A traditional English pale ale with complex roasted malt flavours, leading to a fruity hoppy bitter/sweet finish.


ABV 4.8%

A chestnut, tawny red premium ale. Brewed with roasted malts and English Fuggle hops, to give a smoky, spicy hoppiness on the nose, leading to a molasses, nutty palate with a light fruity hop dryness.

Hopback Brewery Summer Lightning

ABV 5.0%

An extremely pleasant bitter, straw coloured beer with a terrific fresh, hoppy aroma.

Wight Squirrel

ABV 4.3%

A rich, russet-coloured full flavoured, easy drinking Best Bitter. Brewed with Crystal Malts giving a smooth caramel taste and hopped with Boadicea hops, hand-picked from Ventnor Botanic Garden on the Isle of Wight.
