The atmosphere in The Dean Ale & Cider House is warm and welcoming. The open log fire warms and welcomes to keep everyone toasty in the winter months, whilst the decking and garden beckons in the summer. There are plenty of sofas to relax on and seating in the garden area, which includes a covered smoking area for those who enjoy a cigarette with their drink. Polite dogs on a lead are welcome in the bar and garden.
We’re proud to offer an extensive range of well kept real ales, plus a great selection of craft beers from around the world. Of our six hand pumps, five are devoted to an ever changing array of different styles, from balanced ‘best bitters’, through ‘hoppy’ pale ales to dark beers such as stouts and porters.
Craft ciders are also a fixture, both on hand pump and by the bottle. In addition customers can choose from a wide variety of bottled beers, from new wave North American craft beers to well-established Belgian Abbey style beers and everything in between.
