Drink suppliers:

Bradley’s Juices

Stunning juices from Somerset apples, the range changes according to what’s in season. @bradleysjuice


Brilliant beers brewed in Timsbury by the owners of our favourite pubs – The Green Man, The Victoria, The Portcullis, The Hillgrove and The Miners Arms. Some traditional, some a bit whacky, our stock varies depending what’s best from the brewery at the time. @dawkinsales

The Ethicurean

Our friends at their award-winning restaurant in Wrington are now making waves in the booze world with their brilliant Collector vermouth. Made with botanicals foraged from the Somerset lanes, it’s already proving a winner behind our bar. @thecollectoruk

Extract Coffee Roasters

Kiwi coffee geeks who supply the best coffee known to mankind.

Indigo Wines

We British wine drinkers should be grateful for the sleuthing skills of importer Ben Henshaw of Indigo Wine’ says Jancis Robinson, and we couldn’t agree more. Ben excels in sniffing out the best from undiscovered makers and regions in Spain and dabbles in other countries too. @indigo_uk

Les Caves de Pyrene

Importers of characterful wines from around the world, specialising in those that are made with minimal intervention and with utmost respect for the environment.

Liberty Wines

Brilliant value wines from Italy and beyond as well as our fabulous prosecco on draught. @liberty_wines

Newcomer Wines

The clue’s in the name: these chaps burst onto the London wine scene last year, bringing the new age of Austrian wine to our shores, made by progressive young winemakers keen to shrug off the stuffy and bring in the fun. And just wait till you see their labels.

Regal Rogue

Vermouth is something of a theme on our drinks list and this is one of the stars. Made in Australia from indigenous botanicals, it’s light and fruity and really very good. @regalrogue

RS Wines

We’ve been doing business with Raj Soni for a quarter of a century; that’s how much we love his list. Here we have some old favourites that have really stood the test of time, and some funky newcomers that really hit the spot.

Severn Cider

Cider made with traditional cider apples from unsprayed orchards just up the river.

Vine Trail

Regularly named-checked by the nation’s leading wine writers, Vine Trail’s list drips with top-drawer French wines from very classy producers.
