– On the pumps will be –

st austell: proper job 4.5%

A powerfully authentic IPA, Proper Job is brewed with a blend of imported American hops. It is a real treat of a beer with a growing reputation and is loved by beer enthusiasts far and wide.

gadds: booster 3.6%

A delicious Blonde Ale using sweet biscuity malts and perfumed, lemony EKG hops. An easy like a Sunday morning kind of beer, mellow and refreshing.

harveys: dark mild 3%

Malty and Mellow. Soft and slightly sweet with a dry, nutty aftertaste akin to an infusion of ground nuts. Refreshing, hydrating and comforting. 

harveys: best bitter 4%

A superbly balanced bitter with prominent hop character. The brew evolved over decades, satisfying the expectations of the people of Sussex and its adjoining counties. Finest Maris Otter malted barley is supplemented with a dash of Crystal malt for balance. Our hops are a blend of four different local varieties, to give a distinctive hoppy finish.

360: Session IPA 4.3%

A simple malt bill creates the platform for an abundance of juicy Mosaic hops to shine in this dangerously sessionable pale ale. Dry-hopped with Amarillo and Chinook for hints of grapefruit and tangerine.

Craftsman: 4.8% (Still)

Forager 4% (Sparkling berry)

All In 7% (Still)

– Resting in the cellar – 

Redemption: Big Chief (5.5%) 

Big hoppy IPA style beer, packed full of Kiwi hops with hints of honey and nectar and plenty of tropical citrus and floral notes.

Thornbridge: Jaipur 5.9%

A citrus dominated India Pale Ale, its immediate impression is soft and smooth yet builds to a crescendo of massive hoppiness accentuated by honey.

Kent: Pale 

A full flavoured and aromatic pale ale.

Musket: Flintlock 4.2%

A stunning best bitter which evokes a taste of an old English woodland, with shafts of dappled sunlight striking through green cedar trees. Flintlock will ignite your taste buds with its spicy orange undertones and just a hint of marmalade.


Fyne: Jarl 3.8%

The epitome of a modern classic – an easy-drinking, beautifully balanced session ale bursting with flavour.

5 Points: Best Bitter 4.1%

Five Points Best is a single-hopped Best Bitter, brewed with Fuggles hops from Hukins Hops. Refreshing and smooth, Best has notes of caramel and biscuit, and a lovely grassy, herbal freshness that makes you want to reach for another one.

5 Points: Pale 4.4%

Our Five Points Pale is a fresh, zesty, aromatic pale ale brewed with malted barley, a little wheat, and Amarillo and Citra hops from the West Coast of the USA. It’s our flagship beer, and its citrus, resinous notes make it a perfect easy-drinking beer for any occasion.

Iron Pier: Wealdway IPA 4.5%

A session strength IPA packed full of Columbus and Chinook for a piney, resinous aroma and balanced bitterness.

Burning Sky: Plateau 3.5%

Pale gold in colour, with a crisp malt edge and sharp bitterness. Plateau has been hopped at different stages of the brew, with a big mix of US & NZ hops to satisfy the discerning drinker.

Musket: Trigger 3.6%

An easy drinking, hoppy, Pale Ale that can magically transport you to rolling Hop Gardens, where wild flowers are in abundance and bees are pollinating the blackcurrant bushes. Evokes childhood memories of bygone summers!

St Austell: Tribute 4.2%

The South West’s favourite beer, Tribute is an easy drinking pale ale. The zesty orange and grapefruit flavours are balanced with biscuit malt for this superb classic.

St Austell: Trelawny 3.8%

This full-bodied, malty beer is a great partner to robust flavours. A delicate apricot aroma is followed by peach and toffee on the palate and a toasted bitter finish.

Butcombe: Best Bitter 4%

Created from Maris Otter malt and a secret blend of English hops. Meticulously crafted before ‘craft’ was even a thing. Its distinctive bitter, clean and refreshing flavour has been Bristol’s go-to for good times since the 1970’s.

Kent: Quiet American 4.2%

A light and fresh American Pale Ale that is both floral and citrusy, with a hint of grapefruit.
