As a Community Owned Free House we are, as the name implies, free to source the drinks you will like best. We run Woodforde's Norfolk Wherry as our regular ale, and supplement this with other interesting guest beers. In addition we have a great selection of lager and cider.

Our wines are carefully chosen to complement our food and to suit every budget.
