Our drinks are sourced locally where possible, otherwise organic / fairtrade / small independent producers. Where possible, we buy direct from the manufacturer which not only means more money to them buy also more choice to us. Despite making stock control a bit more of a fiddle we feel sure you’ll agree that the end result is worth the effort! All the usual favourites can be found here – beers, wines, spirits etc – but not necessarily the brand names you’d recognise. Contrary to what you might think, this means a great improvement on flavour as our products are hand picked for their quality and great taste.
Draught ales are sourced from the massive array of great quality small independent brewers in East Anglia. We rotate our beers so you won’t find the same beer each time you visit – giving you more opportunity to try lots of different brews. In addition to the draught ales we also have a wide range of bottled beers – again all from East Anglia – including light ale, stout, mild, wheat beer & more.
Our range of soft drinks includes some very tasty locally made cordials from Hedgerow Cordials – flavours vary through the seasons. Our apple juice is also local – The Suffolk Apple Juice and Cider Place supplies us with pressed Bramley apple juice – and this is also the base for our popular warm spiced apple juice. Cola is Fentiman’s Curiosity Cola and lemonade is Belvoir organic real lemonade. Despite these high quality soft drinks (we don’t use post-mix syrup drinks in our pub at all) we only charge normal pub prices for all our drinks.
Non-drinkers will be delighted with our range of ‘Nilcoholic‘ drinks. These recipes were concocted to broaden the range of drinks for drivers and those choosing not to consume alcohol for other reasons. They include a ‘Nojito’ (a bit like a Mohito but without the rum) and a ‘lime & ginger kick’, amongst other things.
During the colder months we also stock a range of warming winter drinks including our special mulled wine. We took our time to perfect our own recipe using fairtrade wine, brandy, port, orange juice and whole spices. Our warm spiced cider is also a big hit - again whole spices are used and a drop of rum adds an extra kick!
