Timothy Taylor – Landlord
Refreshingly reliable, nationally renowned, this full drinking Pale Ale with a complex and hoppy aroma.
A Classic Strong Pale Ale, Landlord has won more awards nationally than any other beer: This includes four times as Champion at the Brewers’ International Exhibition and four times as CAMRA’s beer of the year.
Green King – Abbot Ale
The famous Domesday Book chronicles “cerevisiarii” or ale brewers as servants of the Abbot in the town’s Great Abbey.
The Greene King brewery sits alongside the historic ruins of the Abbey and to this day our brewers still draw water from the same chalk wells used by brewing predecessors all those years ago
This irresistible ale has masses of fruit characters, a malty richness and superb hop balance. It is brewed longer to a unique recipe.
