First stop was the Cask Corner: Serving a number of real ales but particularly a few from the Toad Brewery.
These beers are quite hoppy and a couple of them were too 'burnt' flavoured for my taste. Blonde on Blonde and Golden Angel being those.
That said I really enjoyed the pints of Tadpole that i quaffed! Still quite hoppy but a fine beer to enjoy and at only 3.8% you can spend a whole evening on it if you want!
Their website says of it:
Again a nice old style boozer not spoilt by being modernized and long may that continue. As I remember I had Timothy Taylor Landlord in here and jolly fine it was too!
Quirky old boys pub with two rooms and "outdoor" lavs. Not changed in many a year and all the better for it. Beers from the Acorn Brewery (Barnsley) and also Kelham Island (Easy Rider)
Lively and rocky and we watched more footy on the TV, but the beer was fine I had Tadpole in here until it ran out and then a not so good Greene King IPA.
We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express out on Catesby industrial park but the Woodfield Farm next door also served a fine pint of Tadpole and did great food too!
