We pride ourselves in offering a great selection of drinks, sourced from local suppliers, to suit most palates. With everything from beer and cider, wine, Prosecco and Pimm's to gin and tonic - we also offer a selection of non-alcoholic refreshments. Our beers and ciders are hand-picked from local breweries and offer a range of strengths and flavours with full tasting notes available.
Please see below for details of the local breweries and companies that we will be working with again this year. The beers that we are planning to provide will be updated as they are confirmed, but one or two may vary on the day. Full tasting notes will be available at the bar. There will also be an opportunity to take some of our favourite beers and ciders home in carry out containers, quantities permitting. We will again be showcasing our bar dedicated to Pimm's, Prosecco, wine and gin! These are locally sourced - details of which are shown below.
We are thrilled this year to be adding an additional brewery to our offering - as well as an additional cider supplier. Full details will be shown here once they are confirmed. Please follow us on Facebook and Twitter for regular updates.

Bish Bash Bosh - Made from 100% Sussex apples, this dry yet mellow cider is a blend of mainly dessert apples with some traditional bittersweet cider apples added making it light in colour, clean on the tongue and very drinkable!!

Cabin Pressure Spirits are a husband and wife team that produce delicious gin in their cunningly repurposed garden shed in Horsham, West Sussex. Each batch is prepared using the finest botanical ingredients that are ground by hand, steeped in organic grain spirit for 48 hours and then vacuum distilled at an ambient temperature. The result is a remarkably smooth and flavoursome gin. Every bottle produced by Cabin Pressure is finished by hand and presented in an elegant ceramic crock. Only when David and Emily are 100% satisfied are they individually numbered and wax sealed.More Information
Silent Pool Gin is a classic gin at heart, full bodied and fresh with depth, clarity and flavour. A rich and clean juniper-driven spirit, Silent Pool Gin is produced using 24 botanicals and the cool, clear spring-water from the Silent Pool itself. Floral notes of lavender and chamomile combine with the freshness of citrus, grounded with the subtle sweetness of local honey, to create a well-balanced gin that is both traditional and refreshingly individual in nature.More Information
