REGULAR SESSION BEER
BINGHAMS TWYFORD TIPPLE
Twyford Tipple is an easy drinking tawny coloured bitter which has a satisfying malty flavour with a citrus hop finish. Named after the adjacent parish of Twyford, we think that this tipple is deliciously satisfying despite its lower alcoholic strength. The citrus hops give a refreshing, thirst quenching finish.
6X is the jewel in Wadworth’s crown. Their most popular beer, the one which made them famous, and the one that won United Kingdom's Gold at this year's World Beer Awards! It has been in production for nearly 100 years and they still use the original recipe, expertly brewed in our Victorian brewery in the West Country.
For many ale drinkers, 6X is the only option, so if you’ve never tried it, don’t wait any longer.
Full bodied and distinctive, it’s a strong premium ale.
6X is mid-brown in colour, malty and fruity on the nose with a balancing hoppy note. The delicious malt and fruit character emerge even more intensely on the palate with a long, lingering and malty finish

CRAFT BEER ON TAP
Lawless Lager is a maverick brew that follows the 500- year-old Bavarian brewing law to achieve traditional purity using only four ingredients.
They then added an idiosyncratic twist of their own, creating a blend of Pilgrim, El Dorado and Styrian Goldings hops. With Pilsner Malt, Wheat Malt, Caragold, lager yeast and their own mineral rich local water.
Coolly lagered for 40 days – oh, and they slipped in a dash of hops, whilst no one was looking – for a sharp, citrusy kick.
Lawless Lager is best served with spicy foods, tempura, smoked and cured meats, shell fish and oysters
