How does it work?

We'll showcase the ales in our Summer Cask Ale Selection, one-by-one over the summer period. We'll have limited barrels of our chosen guest ale in stock so, when we say the last pint has been poured, it really has all gone until our next guest ale is delivered. We can't tell you now what order or when each ale will be with us, but we'll happily assure you that each and every barrel will be stored and poured with the love and devotion you expect from a true country pub. At Vintage Inns we're proud of our Cask Marque accreditation.

If you really can't sleep wondering what ale is on our pumps, feel free to give your nearest Vintage Inn a call ahead of your visit.

Note: Ales are subject to availability and whilst stocks last
