Beer Guarantee

If you are not 100% happy with your beer we will gladly exchange it. Please ask for a ‘taster’ to help you find a beer you like. ‘Beer’ covers a vast array of tastes and flavours and we are especially keen to encourage people to check out real ale who perhaps have not tried it before, especially women and younger people. So do not be shy, let the bar staff know and ask to be introduced to some tasters to find one you like.
