Celebrating the local brewers, cider makers and producers within 15 miles of each pub. We will be selling as much as we can from our immediate independent suppliers at each pub.

Euros @ Beerhouses Pubs

Idle Beerhouse, West Riding, The Sportsman Beer Garden, Stalybridge Buffet Bar Ladies Room & The Old Turk will be showing some or all of the Euro 2020 / 2021 Championships live. Keep an eye out on each pubs social media for what games are on and whether there is any food or booking requirement.


We celebrate Germany’s traditional festival in our own way. There will be some great German beers including Oktoberfest specials and expect so German style food where we have kitchens. Lederhosen is optional..


At selected Beerhouses pubs in early November we will be celebrating all things smoked from Beers to whisky to food and anything else in between. So if you’re a fan of the Smoke then make sure you are here..

Donkeystone Brewing Mini Takeover

We are hosting one of our most local breweries for a mini takeover, they are putting out some great beers at the moment so we can’t wait to get them in after quite a while away from our pumps.

Tiny Rebel Birthday Celebration

To celebrate the 8th birthday of one of the biggest and craftiest brewers around we are hosting a mini tap takeover to showcase some of their one off birthday brews – we will be having 7 of their beers on draught, as well as a bunch of cans.

Lechyd Da! (That’s a Welsh toast according to Google).

Siren Tap Takeover

The rather brilliant beer makers Siren Craft from Wokingham, Berkshire will be taking over our bar with hopefully 8 cask beers plus some keg & cans from Thursday 7th May. Lucy Clarke from Siren should also be making an appearance to be on hand to inform you about the beer and brewery.

Don’t forget the 8th May is a Friday bank holiday as well so all the more reason to come out on a Thursday night and drink damn fine beer…
