Deliveries And Opening Hours – March 2021


As we look towards reopening in the summer, we are going to continue our delivery service for as long as it is needed by customers who can’t get to us by car. However as of this week we are moving local delivery to Thursday evenings to allow us to open as a shop again on Fridays.

  • Local Deliveries – Thursday Evenings
  • Shop Open – Friday & Saturday 1pm to 6pm (serving from the door)

We Can Choose For You

If you’re not sure what specific beers or ciders you want, for instance if you are buying a gift, we are happy to make selections for you, taking account of any information you give us, such as preferred breweries and styles. Just let us know in your email. We will also have some set packs available to make it easier to choose.

We will email you to confirm your order by 3pm on the day of delivery, and send you an invoice to pay online. Please be patient, we will get back to you.

Stock will be allocated on a first come, first served basis – we will let you know if anything you have ordered is out of stock.

We will only be taking orders via email – please don’t phone us or use our social media channels to place an order.


If you are ordering a growler fill, please state the size you want, and whether you need to purchase a new growler, or want to swap an existing growler.

If you want to swap an existing growler, please ensure your empty growler has been thoroughly cleaned, and leave it with the lid on outside your door so we can collect it.


When packing and delivering orders, we will maintain strict hygiene routines. Deliveries will be contactless.


We will collect and hold information we require in order to administer and deliver orders. We will not use your information for any other purposes, and will delete it once things are back to normal.

Thank you for supporting us at this difficult time. As long as people want great beer and cider, we’ll keep ordering from independent breweries and distributors. Please consider supporting other small businesses wherever possible, we all need your support to ensure we are still here whenever things finally go back to normal.

Keep safe.

Sam and Katie.
