Anyone know if there is any real cider on offer like there is in Harkers?

Not yet I'm afraid. Won't have space on the bar so might get a few bag in boxes for a fridge soon.

Right we're finding our feet now!
So going forward our 3 house beers will be Tatton Blonde, Weetwood Eastgate & B & P Original. We'll be mixing it up on the other 3 pumps though, short term, we've got 3 tuns (1642 & XXX), Tatton (Ruck & Maul porter), Lancaster (black), and others from Rudgate, Red Willow & Montys coming in.

Thanks to all who have been in so far, Swifty

'Ruck & Maul' porter eh ??

That's nothing short of spiffing - and it's good to see you picking up (geddit) the rugby theme.

This calls for an overt display of male bonding in a public place I reckon, including a rousing rendition of some bawdy middle-class drinking song or other...

I know ...all together now...

"Taste the cream of a bream, team

Taste the cream of a bream

(F*ck a wallaby) etc." ad infinitum

What ? There's a moderator ?

Oh... alright guv, I'll come quietly. It's a fair cop.

Afternoon all! I can confirm that we'll be getting some real ciders this week. What exactly we will be getting is still up for discussion but they'll be in for next weekend.

As for beers, the usual suspects of Tatton Blonde, Weetwood Eastgate and B & P Original will be on. I've got the following guest beers coming in: Moorhouse (Blonde Witch, Black Cat, APA Special), Montys (Midnight & Mischief), Pheonix (Arizona), Darkstar (Hophead), Hobsons, (Mild, Twisted Spire, Manor Ale) and hopefully some Liverpool Organic.

Cheers all!

Sorry for lack of update recently, I've been knee deep in nappies!

On at present the regular 3 (Tatton: Blonde, Weetwood: Eastgate, B & P Original) plus Sandstone: Onyx, Barngates: Cat Nap & Tenacious Ted.

Due on soon are:
Red Willow: Feckless
Titanic: Steerage & Plum Porter
Castle Rock: Harvest Pale & Black Gold
Salopian: Darwins Origin & Hoptwister
Stonehouse: Sunlander & Off The Rails.

We'd just had 16 picnic benches delivered for the gardens, and then it snowed! Typical.

Ta, Swifty

Had a wallet quivering moment on Saturday. Popped in for a quick drink with girlfriend after visiting the Food & Drink shown. Pint of Titanic Plum Porter (very good) and large glass of NZ cabernet sauvignon cost £11-40! :suprised: Come on guys, 2 drinks for more than a tenner, it really is taking the p**** :evil: Suppose I'll have to moderate my girlfriend's taste in wine!

Yep, same here John - but, I put it on the food bill so it didn't hurt as much. At least that's what I've tried to convince myself!

I do think £3.60 for local ale (Eastgate) at the Architect is bloody steep, particularly after paying wallet soothing prices at the Cottage for tip top ale!

Evening all,

We've now swapped Tatton Blonde for Brimstage Trappers hat as our staple blonde beer for a month or so.

Beers in/due in soon are:
White Horse: Black horse porter 5%
Weetwood: Oasthouse Gold 5%
Tatton: Lazy Haze 3.7%
Titanic: Stout 4.5%
Barngates: Tenacious Ted 3.8%
Stonehouse: Off The Rails 3.8%
Mobberley Fine Ales: Cropcutter 2.6%
Adnams Fat Sprat 3.8%
Red Willow: Wreckless 4.8%

It would be rude to ignore the comments about the prices that we run with. I know it's more than most places in town but the renovation didn't come cheap! Seriously though, I feel like we have a constantly good range on and as most of you know from my time at The Bridge & The Cellar, I won't let idiots in, I won't tolerate staff pouring pints wrong, and I'll never serve beer thats not in good nick.

Anyway, back to the bar!

Swifty

Hi Swifty,
I think Stonehouse 'Off The Rails' is 4.8% not 3.8%, otherwise it wouldn't live up to its name! :drunk:
