Our Cask Ales
Cask ales make a great addition to the selection on offer in the bar, including lager, craft beers and ciders. We have local ales from Irving Brewery and Goddard’s Brewery, alongside some classic ales Sharp’s Doombar and Timothy Taylor’s.
Our new plants
With an architectural presence, our new plants,” Mother In Laws Tongues”, not only look good, they actually purify the air and absorb toxins. In fact, NASA in its published research said that these plants can absorb up to 107 pollutants from the air making them exceptional air purifiers. Whilst most plants absorb oxygen the Sansevieria converts carbon dioxide and produces pure oxygen, making them the perfect addition to our conservatory
