Always popular, we have the UK’s best selling cask ale Doom Bar from Sharps Brewery on draught in addition to many other ales and ciders ranging for the mainstream to those brewed from local micro breweries.

The aroma of Doom Bar combines an accomplished balance of spicy resinous hop, inviting sweet malt and delicate roasted notes. The mouth feel is a perfectly balanced and complex blend of succulent dried fruit, lightly roasted malty notes and a subtle yet assertive bitterness. The bitterness remains into the finish with dry fruity notes which implore the drinker to go back for more.

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.
