Health tip

The natural products in beer combine to deliver a range of vitamins and minerals which scientists have shown can be very beneficial to your health, when beer is consumed in moderation. No wonder many refer to beer as "liquid bread".

Of course, enjoying a beer with friends also increases your feeling of wellbeing – and that must be good for your health!


As usual Marti has an extraordinarily good selection of ales on offer to enjoy over the weekend, Christmas and the New Year with the addition of Magners cider now available on draft in both bars.

On now:

Jennings Cumberland Ale (4.0%)

Crouch Vale Essex Boys Bitter (3.5%) - "This chestnut coloured ale is a riot of traditional English malt and hops. It is a classic best bitter with full, satisfying body and glorious lasting hop bitterness."

Brakspear Bitter (3.4%) - " is a red amber coloured beer with a tight white head and a delicate toffee aroma. The gently effervescent ale gives a warming sweet malty toffee flavour, a citrus bitterness and a hint of saltiness."

Black Sheep Golden Sheep (3.9%) - excellent with turkey and ham

NEW Clark's No Angel (4.0%) - excellent with ham and turkey

NEW Skinner's Christmas Fairy (3.9%) - excellent with mince pies
