Our Beers & Wines
Thwaites has a brewing history that spans more than 200 years, and produces beers exclusively for our pubs, inns and hotels, so every pint is something rather special.
Combining craftsmanship with years of experience. Always delicious. Enjoy a pint or two at The Royal Oak. Cheers!
When you relax with a drink at The Royal Oak, you’ll discover a well-stocked bar serving the finest Thwaites cask ales.
Daniel Thwaites uses only the finest dark kiln roasted malts, English barley and select fuggles and goldings hops to create this bittersweet dark mild with a deliciously dry finish.
Our award-winning team of five brewers – Brian, Harry, Glyn, Stuart and Mark – have over 125 years of expertise between them and each week they mash hops, barley and brewing liquor to create beers which we’re delighted still carry our forefather’s name.
Our seasonal ales give the team the opportunity to have some fun with flavour combinations, and our guests the chance to savour some beers which are truly unique to us.
