Being a Wadworth pub our range of draught beer caters for a variety of tastes.

Wadworth 6X

Full bodied and distinctive, 6X remains one of the South's most famous beers. The beer is mid-brown in colour, malty and fruity with balancing hop character.


Horizon4.0% ABV

Easy drinking all year round and robust enough to accompany most foods, Horizon is light in colour, but full flavoured and best enjoyed cool.

Henry's Original IPA

Henry's Original IPA3.6% ABV

This golden brown beer, named after Henry Wadworth, has a good balance of flavour and a long lasting aftertaste, becoming biscuity. A good session beer.

The Bishops Tipple

A golden brew with an intriguing aroma from the Saaz and Styrian Goldings hops. The full flavour is balanced with hop bitterness giving a clean finish for easy drinking.

Seasonal Beer

St George & The Dragon

St George & The Dragon4.5% ABV

Available March & April

A beer of full body and robust bitterness with a fiery amber hue - just the stuff for dragon slaying! The palate is crisp and tangy, leading to a long dry 'digestive biscuit' finish with hints of orange and blackcurrant.

Farmers Glory

Farmers Glory4.7% ABV

Available July & August

A classic English ale to celebrate the hard work and fruits of our agricultural industry. A rewarding beer after a hard day's work.

Malt & Hops

Malt & Hops4.5% ABV

Available September & October

Unkilned green hops used within hours of picking impart a surge of cleansing orange zest flavours and refreshing bitterness which balances the malt-sweet palate of this pale harvest ale.

With a gentle rum aroma and dark, unrefined sugar adding a rich smoothness, it is a full-bodied, deep copper coloured ale with a base of crystal malt and delicate Fuggles and Goldings hops.

Old Timer

Old Timer5.8% ABV

Available December & January

Wadworth's winter beer. Rich copper brown in colour with a strong malty aroma and a full bodied, intense flavour.
