Britannia 3.8%

The Goddess Britannia rules the waves and has steered our navigators home since Roman times. We take pride in this amber-coloured, smooth malty beer that is well balanced giving the mellow, malty finish of a Great British Bitter.

New Dawn Pale 3.9%

Wake up with the taste of summer orchards and barley in our New Dawn Pale. The colour of freshly cut straw with a distinctive fruit aroma, it’s well hopped to a refreshingly sharp finish. Especially welcome by thirsty workers.

Golden Anchor 4.3%

The legend of The Quest for the Golden Anchor demands the regular consumption of clean, pure and refreshing ale. This golden draught smacks of fruit and malt on the nose with pleasing biscuit flavours and a lasting malty aftertaste.

Colour of beer

Classic IPA 5.2%

This classic Indian Pale Ale draws on the popular beers exported to loosen the collars of uptight officers on balmy evenings. This healthy straw coloured ale neatly balances powerful citrus fruits with malty sweetness and robust bitter flavours. Easy on the eye but it packs a bit of kick in the glass so go steady old boy.

Colour of beer

Eclipse Stout 4.4%

This traditional, robust stout can be seen from the Moon, or any other pub for that matter, and puts other dark beers firmly in the shade. Perfectly balanced roast almond and chocolate flavours are topped off with a tight creamy head, surely that can never be wrong together.

Apus American IPA 5.5%

Named after the Bird of Paradise which for many years explorers thought just hung around all day showing off because it had no working feet, it’s obviously an ideal pint for many of our customers. This deceptively drinkable, refreshing American style brew uses lager malts, balanced with a full American hop and a lasting display of complex aftertaste.

Columbus (October) 4.4%

When Columbus landed in the Caribbean he discovered a continent rich in exotic colours and cuisine. This copper–red beer exudes roast malt flavours that give way to a spicy hop finish with slight coffee overtones.

Wise Guy (November) 4.0%

‘Threescore barrels, laid below, to prove old England's overthrow’ as the rhyme says but we’ll be making a lot more than sixty barrels of this gunpowder coloured beer. The fruity aroma continues onto the tongue with peppery hops increasingly evident in the taste. Creamy toffee flavours flow into sweet but dry finish.

Pints of Peace (December) 4.8%

A traditional dark porter with delicate tones of rich fruit, this leads to a bittersweet taste and finish perfect for long winter nights. This beer was made to celebrate the football game played in the no-mans-land between the trenches of WW1 on Christmas Day 1914. The English won on penalties proving that even in war, anything is possible.
