The Bar

You can always expect a warm welcome and a great atmosphere at the Clockhouse Bar and Private Dining & Tasting Room.

We love good music so you can be sure there will be something happening several times in a month - keep an eye out for the Open Mic Night, always very popular!

Each month you can find a list of forthcoming events below with details of who is performing, on what day and the time of the performance. Due to the popularity of these events, it is best to arrive in plenty of time!

Locally sourced products are important to us and that’s why we stock a fine selection of locally produced, independently brewed beers. We also often invite in guest beers from other regions to add even more variety.

Gin has become hugely popular in recent times due largely to the innovative blending of flavours that has taken place. We at the Clockhouse Bar are particularly fond of the wide variety of Gin’s available and have quite a ready supply in the bar. We even have our own Gin blend - Gin on the Green which is, in our opinion, fabulous and goes beautifully with Fever Tree tonic.

More about Gin - thanks to Wiki

Although several different styles of gin have evolved, it is legally differentiated into four categories in the European Union, which are described as follows.

Juniper-flavoured spirit drinks
This includes the earliest class of gin, which is produced by pot distilling a fermented grain mash to moderate strength (e.g. 68% ABV), and then redistilling it with botanicals to extract the aromatic compounds. It must be bottled at a minimum of 30% ABV. Juniper-flavoured spirit drinks may also be sold under the names Wacholder or Genebra.

Gin
This is a juniper-flavoured spirit made not via the redistillation of botanicals, but by simply adding approved natural flavouring substances to a neutral spirit of agricultural origin. The predominant flavour must be juniper.

Distilled gin
Distilled gin is produced exclusively by redistilling ethanol of agricultural origin with an initial strength of 96% ABV (the azeotrope of water and ethanol) in stills traditionally used for gin, in the presence of juniper berries and of other natural botanicals, provided that the juniper taste is predominant. Gin obtained simply by adding essences or flavourings to ethanol of agricultural origin is not distilled gin.

London gin
London gin is obtained exclusively from ethanol of agricultural origin with a maximum methanol content of 5 grams per hectolitre of 100% ABV equivalent, whose flavour is introduced exclusively through the re-distillation in traditional stills of ethanol in the presence of all the natural plant materials used, the resultant distillate of which is at least 70% ABV. London gin may not contain added sweetening exceeding 0.1 grams of sugars per litre of the final product, nor colorants, nor any added ingredients other than water. The term London gin may be supplemented by the term "dry".

Our own Gin on the Green (pictured) is a wonderful blend of botanicals especially Juniper and citrus. Why not give it a try?

NEW

We are proud to be part of the Cask Marque scheme.

The ‘Cask Marque’ is an award for pubs which serve great quality cask ale.

Cask Marque is an independent company funded by brewers, pub groups and trade bodies (see below) with the aim of improving beer quality through an accreditation scheme.

Qualified assessors make over 20,000 visits a year to over 10,000 pubs which hold the award. They test for temperature (to score full marks the beer should be between 10 – 14 degrees), appearance, aroma and taste. All beers must make the grade to pass the visit.

Accredited pubs are then promoted through the CaskFinder App, CaskFinder Online and through the plaque and point of sale at the pub. Recent independent research for the 2017 Cask Report identified that 77% of beer drinkers recognised the Cask Marque plaque as a badge of quality.
