It’s arrived..at last!

We are open from 12 noon tomorrow, 12th April for outside drinking and takeout. Don’t forget it’s “rule-of-six”, sit down only etc etc!!!

We’ve got 4 cask ales on for you, including a new beer from Andy at High Weald Brewery who has started up again with new kit and a new site somewhere in Forest Row

It’s a Dark Mild at 4.1%:
“A rich mahogany mild ale, with roast-caramel flavour and a gently hopped spicy aroma”
looking forward to trying this one!


The full list can be found here

If you want to book a table email us as here

Thanks go out to Lisa, David and Sarah who have spent all weekend helping us to get ready. Also to some of our regulars, Jonny, Steve, James and Phil who helped us with the new Marquee. We got it up just in time, despite the efforts of UPS to thwart us by losing one of the packages!

Looking forward to seeing you all again and hoping that the Government Roadmap doesn’t take a wrong turn and we are all back to “normal” by the end of June. Stay safe and healthy!

BTW..the Marquee has been fully road tested, and beer tastes fine wherever you sit!

Finally, good luck to all the local pubs and shops that re-open their doors tomorrow. Please support us and we will do our best to keep you safe and satisfied!

Countdown to Stage 2…

Boris has given the green light for outside drinking on Monday 12th April. To prepare for the big day we need you to help us clear down the cask ales so we have fresh beer on!

We have one last delivery day on Wednesday 7th April, so get your orders in (by Wednesday lunchtime if poss!!), first come first served!

Thanks to everyone that has supported us through Lockdown 3 and we are looking forward to seeing you all again when we re-open.

If you’re planning to come down it may be a good idea to book, especially on re-opening day and weekends. Just email us here, with date, time, number of people and approximately how long. Don’t forget it is outside only so dress accordingly and you will need your masks for when you are not seated. The rule-of-six applies so max 6 people per table!

And for Easter…

Want something for that beer-lover at Easter?

We have a couple of Belgium Gift packs, one from Delirium and one from Bruges Zot; each come with four bottles of beer and a souvenir glass. These are both £25 each and can be ordered for delivery.

If you want to add a bit of flair to a delivery of draft beer (or cider), we have a couple of growlers to chose from. For cask ales and cider, we have a 4 pint plastic growler which is just £3 extra when filled, and for keg beers, a glass 16oz growler; this is £10 and hold 3.3 pints. Both growlers can be re-used.

We deliver on Wednesdays and Saturdays for full details see here

Brush up on your 4C’s…

Citra Columbus, Chinook, Centennial

Freshly tapped: IPA 4C from Kernel Brewery

“4C is a superb IPA that smells of crates of clementines and warm marshmallow. There’s a sticky, gooey, fluffy thing in the malts too, as well as being chewy with toffee and crunchy with cereal bars. And then there are the hops. They’re sherbet coated tangerine segments, lime leaves and garden shrubbery, gunky woody resin and sharp as a tack lemon pips. The result is that 4C has a finish that’s beautifully balanced between tongue coating oily honey sweetness and huge punch-your-lights-out dry bitterness.”

Fresh for the Weekend…

New beers for this Saturday’s delivery: a single hop pale using Bru-1 from Quantock and an award winning Oyster Stout from Hammerton

For the full list see here


Just a reminder that we cannot leave deliveries on the doorstep so we need to ensure that you are at home when we deliver!


Obsessed With Bru-1

A new hop for Quantock delivering a huge tropical punch followed by notes of green apple. A rewarding sip every time.


Oyster Stout

In 1938 the Hammerton was famous for being the first in the world to use Oysters as part of the brewing process. In this new recipe we’ve used a variety of flavoursome malts, including a good dose of oats. Fresh wild Maldon oysters are then added to the boil to add a subtle extra complexity to the taste of this stout. CAMRA Champion Beer of London ‘Stout’ winner & ‘Overall’ runner-up.

On the 12th Day of April…

Yes, we are re-opening our doors on the 12th April, assuming everything goes according to the Government roadmap.

We aim to open our outside space as we did last year and will have 7 tables available, varying from 6 people to 2. The rule of six will apply and it will be table service only. We aim to open at 12 noon on the 12th April and after that will try to return to our regular hours albeit that we will be taking last orders at 9.30pm and closing at 10pm every night in respect of our neighbours. Keep an eye on our website and social media for more information.
