Something for everyone

We’re a family friendly pub, with something going on all during the week that will appeal to everyone. Get involved with our range of indoor sporting games available, including a skittles alley and darts board for a little bit of friendly competition.

With both Sky and BT Sports on offer, you can also watch all your favourite fixtures from around the globe throughout the week. Enjoy a bite to eat while watching the horse racing or a favourite Brains beer, while enjoying the best football matches.

And when the sun is shining, our patio gardens are ideal for relaxing with your favourite drink and watching the world go by.

Keep on top of all the latest events and what’s going on by following us on Twitter, liking us on Facebook and simply watching the boards in house, to make sure you’re not missing out on the action.


The Cask Marque Award is an accreditation which guarantees guests the perfect pint of cask ale, every time. All the cask ales on sale are tested twice a year by a qualified assessor for temperature, appearance, aroma and taste and every beer must reach the required standard in order for the licensee to pass the inspection. Mystery visits may be carried out at any time and feedback is invited from the public.

Cask Marque is an independent, non-profit making organisation formed in 1998 with the aim of improving beer quality in British pubs through the accreditation scheme, training courses on cellar management and the setting of industry standards through a series of beer quality charters, including cellar management, glass-cleanliness and line cleaning.

Over 10,000 pubs hold the Award and each one participates in the ‘World’s Biggest Ale Trail’. This allows drinkers to scan the Cask Marque certificates in the pubs using their phone and the more scans they make, the more prizes they win. Download the CaskFinder App to join the fun!


Looking for a gift for that hard-to-buy-for friend or relative? With our Brains gift cards you can give them the perfect present. Load them up at the bar with the value of your choice* and let your friends and family enjoy food, drinks or even a night’s stay at a Brains Inn of their choice.

Or maybe you know a budding beer enthusiast who would like to add to their collection? Our very own Brains Craft Brewery cans and original Brains Beers are now available in gift packs. Cheers!
