Real Ales

We proudly stock real ales brewed by Holden’s Brewery and Wood’s Shropshire Beers.


Holden’s Golden Glow

An 18ct gold, golden ale with subtle yet fragrant hop aromas, a moreish gentle sweetness and an almost citrus like pleasant bitter finish. Brewed using the finest English Maris Otter malts and choicest Fuggles, Golden Glow is a thirst quenchingly refreshing beer.

Wood’s Shropshire Lad

First brewed in 1996 to celebrate the centenary of the first publication of a Shropshire Lad by A. E. Housman, this 4.5% premium bitter was an instant hit.

Pale, Crystal and Chocolate malts combine to give a sweetish draught followed by a subtle bitterness and fruity overtones from the infusion of traditional Fuggles and Goldings hops from the neighbouring hop fields of Herefordshire and Worcestershire.
