Drink

What we try to do is please our local audience by offering something a little different and where we can, a little local.

In wines we stick to a simple rule 'the wine has got to taste good and represent good value for money', it's about quality, but we also like to have quantity too, offering a list of 40 to 50 wines that cover most bases, occasions and tastes.

In the world of beers and lagers we always make sure there are some friendly familiar faces, but also something a little different. Our range of cask ales vary considerably from pub to pub but most will have 3 or 4 that don't change very often, ideally supporting local brewers and 2 or 3 that rotate to encourage that niggling urge many of us have to try something new.

B & P Original and Traditional Bitter

All of our pubs offer a Brunning and Price Bitter. In the north B&P Original bitter adorns our bars whilst in the south we offer B&P Traditional, both are brewed with the upmost of care and attention and of course regular quality control testing by ourselves to make sure everything is just so.

If you would like to know more about their stories, then read on: Brunning and Price Original and Brunning and Price Traditional.

Annual Wine Tasting 2019

It's a day that we all countdown to on the B&P calendar, crossing off days as we go through a VERY long January until it's here – The Annual Wine Tasting. We fill a room full of what's hip, happening, emerging and classic in the wine category (this year 122 specimens, including some non-alcoholic wines for the first time) and then invite everyone along to taste them all. Managers bring their Deputies and Assistants and together they create their own wine menus and wine specials for the coming year.

The Wine, Spirit and Education Trust

Each year our crew have the opportunity to take part in a training course we call WSET - the course is designed to impart great knowledge of wines and spirits into individuals and honestly isn't just about getting paid to drink some fabulous tipples.

Those that come out with the best results from the training course are rewarded for their thirst for knowledge on an annual trip to a vineyard somewhere very special to further their education!
