Pub of the week: the Kings Arms

In the birthplace of Alfred the Great, our tip for this weekend is guaranteed to leave you feeling festive, thanks to its gift of traditional pub charm and our special Xmas Box bitter.

The fireside at the Kings Arms in Wantage, Oxfordshire awaits you. As does the bar, with its choice of six regional ale pumps – and more than 20 gins.

Following a refurbishment which saw the interior restored to a more classic feel, the recent reopening of this pub provides an enticingly cosy retreat for a glass of our deliciously dark copper bitter.

Little wonder it’s a popular spot for local Camra members – who’ll be in for their Christmas do next week. What more could you possibly Wantage?

Phew, where has the time gone? We’ve been brewing for almost 15 years.

We’ll never produce factory style beer. Our creative brewers use hop flavours to their full, forever artful in the quite wondrous production of naturally flavoursome beer.

Our roots are firmly in the West Country, where we continue to be inspired by the engineering triumphs of the late great Isambard Kingdom Brunel.
