The festival so far has been an absolute scene. We’re having a great time, for sure.

Our industrious chefs have been busy in the kitchen, knocking up killer Scotch eggs, pasties and roast pork sandwiches alongside the kind of excellent menu you’ve come to expect.

Simon’s stewardship of the bar has taken on extra dimension as he’s asked to scuttle downstairs every five minutes to pour a beer that hasn’t found a handpump yet direct from the cask in the cellar. Meanwhile landlord Jeff relives his student union days as he mans the festival bar under the glass roof of our back room.

We’ve seen some turnover on the beer front, so tomorrow’s offer will be very different. Here’s what’s we’ll be selling on Thursday:

Kernel Pale Ale
Redemption Fellowship Porter
Ascot Citra
Ascot Royal IPA
Phoenix Arizona
Big Lamp Keelman Brown
Jarrow Bitter
Dark Star Over the Moon
Windor & Eton Knight of the Garter
Harviestoun Bitter & Twisted
Castle Rock Harvest Pale
Thornbridge Jaipur IPA
Phoenix White Monk

The Gunmakers beer festival’s running Thursday and Friday, noon to 11pm. Join us and have a bloody good time.
