The perfect spot for sports

We have two beer gardens; one at the front, which is ideally placed for a little bit of people-watching and one enclosed secret-garden at the rear, perfect for enjoying a social drink in the sun at the end of the day (unfortunately we cannot guarantee the sun)!

With six large screens showing a breadth of global sporting events you’ll never be bored. We have both BT Sports and Sky Sports and our Racing Channels are also very popular.

If participation is more your style, we have a range of indoor sports; darts, pool and skittles. Our alley is available for hire if you fancy some beer and skittles with your family and friends.

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!
