If you like craft beers then you will love our relaxed and comfortable bars with their huge selection of Craft Ales, Ciders & Artisan Spirits. We have new beers in every week from specialist suppliers who seek out the most interesting and inspirational beers around. With approximately 80 beers in at any one time, there is always something new to try, not forgetting our own beers! Our staff are all beer geeks and are happy to talk through the extensive beer menu and make recommendations. We are also very happy to offer tastings of everything on tap, a ‘try before you buy’ if you will. Our range of Craft Ciders & Spirits are from local, national & International presses & distilleries. We endeavor, where possible to stay faithful to small batch production as much as we can. There is a good variety of Gins, Rums, Whiskys, Bourbons & Single Malts behind the bar to suit all tastes.
One of the largest ranges of Craft Beer in the area also resides within our fridges. We try and keep many cans and bottles in stock from local national & international breweries, allowing us to keep a fantastic range of types and styles to either drink in, or takeaway.
We don’t serve food, but we do actively encourage and welcome you to bring food in to enjoy with your beer. We have a collection of menus from local eateries to help you decide, and in the evenings, some will even deliver your food to you in the bar. We also have a lovely beer garden situated at the foot of Totnes Castle, essentially in the old moat, which gets some lovely afternoon sun.
We are dog friendly (probably too friendly, we love hugs and licks, generally just from the dogs though…) We also have free WIFI. We are licensed until Midnight which makes us the perfect place for a leisurely tour of the wonderful world of beer.
Our main brewing area is situated at the back of the bar, so you can watch us brew lovely beer while sipping a pint of our finest. We have five fermentors in our cellar, so there are lots of beers constantly in rotation. We are lucky to have our Head Brewer Gary working full time to keep us well stocked. Gary has two brewing assistants, Ben & Rowan who also help out. Ben and Rowan are also our ‘Cuckoo Brewers’, they sometimes get let loose on the brewery to create special small batch experimental brews, who knows what they’ll come up with! They also present our Beer Tastings, so do keep your eyes peeled for those when they come up!
We don’t just serve our own beer, however, we also keep in a huge selection of local, national and international craft beer which is updated on a weekly basis so that we should always have something new for you to try.
