Tas​ting Sessions & Taster Menu

Join us for an entertaining evening that features a six-course "Beer Dinner" and showcases seven beers of a variety of styles. 
Your meal will be prepared with selected ingredients and each course is matched by a specially-selected beer whose flavours complement the food. 
Your evening will be hosted by one of our beer experts who will share fascinating facts about each beer and show you how the Brewers and Taste Panel assess every batch of beer. 

The menu and beers vary according to season.

You’re in good company…

Hosting tasting sessions is something which we really enjoy doing and you will find that our team have as much fun guiding these, as those attending. One of our friendly and knowledgable managers will lead the tasting, comparing the style, flavours and aromas of each beer. We encourage as much participation as possible and therefore each tasting session is unique.

No matter what the occasion, a tasting session is the perfect way to have fun, learn something new and drink beer. What more could you want? All you need to do is get together a group of 4 people or more, be they friends, colleagues or team mates, tell us which tasting package you would like and then sit back and enjoy.

We work hard to build an amazing collection of beer, from the hoppiest of IPAs to deep, smoked porters, with everything in between. No matter what level your beer knowledge may be, we hope that you gain something from the tasting, but most of all, we want you to enjoy yourselves!

Below are three packages to choose from, just make a note of which one you would like, pop it on the booking form and wait for confirmation from the pub manager.

Pre-payment for tastings is required and this can be done once the Manager has confirmed availability.
