We are proud of our continuously changing cask beers sourced from the finest, independent Dorset and UK breweries.

We love great beer  – the more local the better! Using a ‘cask to glass’ concept all the ales are served directly from the barrel using traditional methods. A bespoke racking system uses cold water jackets to chill the ales.
