Once again we have the legendary Alix Anthony playing with a full live band. Alix is well known for his incredible showmanship, amazing guitar skills and awesome selection of songs; from James Brown to Prince to Bill Withers and everything in between. If you like if funky, Alix is your man.
We'll also have an extra bar in the brewery serving up bottles of prosecco and big smoke beers on draught. Food will be in the form of a hog roast and bbq in the garden.
There are no tickets and it's free entry for all, so come on down, grab a table early and prepare for fun times!

So here it is! The list for this weekend's Beer Festival. Plenty for everyone! See you here.
We're throwing another of our legendary Ale and Cider Festivals this September! Join us from the 9th to the 11th as we showcase over 60 beers and ciders from the breweries that are exciting us the most at the moment. We've got live music from Alix Anthony and The Wessex Pistols and will be breaking out the hog roast and BBQ to keep you well fed. See you at the bar! - Free entry - No tickets
It's that time of year again folks! Join us for our biannual celebration of all things beer and cider.
We'll have over 60 ales and ciders available over the weekend from the most progressive, independent breweries in the UK. We'll also have a couple of exclusive one-offs from our on site brewery, Big Smoke Brew Co.
Food-wise we'll once again be firing up the hog roast and BBQ with a delicious range of meat and veggie options.
Top this all off with live music each night and you've got a recipe for a very good time indeed.
Free entry and no tickets.
See you at the bar.
Join us to ring in the New Year! We have the excellent Wessex Pistols playing live, hog roast in the garden and plenty of great beer on tap. We are expecting to be very busy so get down early to grab a table.
We're having ourselves a little Halloween Knees Up on Friday the 30th. Live music from The Fangbangers who'll be playing all the spooky hits from 9pm.
After much discussion and planning we're happy to share the (almost) complete beer list for our upcoming beer festival.
We've attempted to strike a balance between light and dark, low ABV and high ABV, weird and sessionable but are pretty happy with the overall list.
We're very lucky to have beer from Rocky Head and London Beer Lab as neither have put their delicious beer into casks before. We also have the cask launch of Big Smoke Brew Co's brand new Medicine Man IPA which weighs in at a hefty 6%.
There are a few final additions to be made to this list and there may be one or two changes. The full list including descriptions and tasting notes will be available in our programme which will be available at the festival.
See you there!
Join us on the 11th, 12th & 13th of September for our first ever ale & cider festival. We'll have 60 cask ales on offer over the course of the weekend from some of our favourite breweries, some of which have never put beer in cask before.
live music every night, a BBQ and hog roast.
