Inn Brief

The Ship Inn at Shalesmoor now has 4 handpumps, all serving local beers.

The Castle Inn at Bradway reopens at 6pm on Friday 11th April under the management of Craig and Marie Harris, previously of the Peaks at Castleton where they offered local ales and home cooked food. They are managers employed Tandem Leisure who have taken on the lease of this pub, along with the Talbot and Peaks. Expect real ales on most of the 6 handpumps on the bar, which will have seen work prior to opening. The kitchen is subject to refurbishment so food won’t be introduced straight away, although hot pork sandwiches did feature on the opening night!

On the 22nd May The Closed Shop will be receiving it’s Pub Of The Month award, and we’d love if you came to help us celebrate. They’ll be a buffet, and for reasons that will become clear, LOADS of beer.

Why loads of beer? Well, we’re rather committed to the Cask Ale cause here, sowe’re hosting our first beer festival from Thursday 22nd till Sunday 25th to launch the start of the summer in style. There will be a BBQ in our large beer garden and a whole extra bar for our expanded ale range. And yes, don’t worry, they’ll still be Blue Bee Nectar Pale.
