About the Pub

A pub since around 1840 this pub closed in 1999 and seemed destined to die, but it rose from the ashes in 2005 to become a real beer haven (or heaven). Began brewing their own beer in Ralph's Ruin brewery in the old pub kitchen Jun 2017. There are normally one, two or maybe even three of their own beers together with an ever changing range of up to six guest beers from microbreweries, near and far, alongside an equally interesting range of ciders, perries and bottled British and Belgian beers. There are folk music sessions (alternating Irish and English) on Wednesday evenings with live music most weekends. Quiz night first Monday of the month. Outside is a secluded garden and small on-site car park. Discount to card carrying CAMRA members of 20p per pint available on real ale and real cider.
