Wines, Beers and Ciders
We pride ourselves on offering an excellent selection of value for money wines.
We aim to have both a quality red and white priced at affordable prices. The red will frequently come from South Africa or South America and the white is likely to be from Spain or Italy.
We carry limited stocks of wine enabling a regular changeover in choice.
We are proud of our extensive range of beers. Our very own local Gyle 59 is always popular as well as Town Mill beer from Lyme Regis.
Recently we have added a brilliant range of ciders from Hunts in Totnes, who use traditional methods to provide their loyal customers with the very best ciders.
With names such as Andsome Bay, Thrasher and Clinker they’re just begging to be sampled!
And our new range of mixers and juices from Folkingtons are certainly worth exploring.
A welcome addition to our range of both sweet and savoury snacks are the scrumptious Great British Biscotti – in flavours including Simply Almond and White Chocolate, Cranberries and Pistachio for the sweet toothed customer, or Cheddar and Fennel, or Wild Garlic and Rosemary for a more savoury punch. These only travel from the other side of Dorset – so very fresh and very crisp just for you.
