Our beautifully renovated bar is always well-stocked with Everards award-winning real ales, guest and craft beers, as well as a great choice of draft lagers, Guiness and Thatchers Cider. We offer a very extensive choice of spirits, bottled beers, soft drinks and an interesting wine list as well as delicious coffee, crafted by our expert barista.

Real Traditional Ales

We are proud to be an Everards pub, serving Everards award winning cask ales, in addition to a choice of lagers, cider and stout as well as a regularly changing selection of guest ales and bottled drinks, including Peroni gluten-free lager.

Selected Wines

We continually review our wine list, to ensure that we offer a range of wines to suit all tastes, including some that are familiar and others that might be less so. We serve a small but extensively tested range of English wines in support of our national winegrowers, who continue to improve the quality of their wines year on year and have recently had much success in International competitions. We are always happy to talk about wine, so please feel free to ask for advice or food pairing suggestions when ordering.


In addition to a wide selection of quality spirits we offer featured drinks and seasonal cocktails each month and we are always on the look out for anything unusual that we can pass on to our more curious customers. We also offer a very carefully selected Gin List, which we continue to add to. Why not try the landlady's favourite or ask a member of staff for a recommendation?

Soft Drinks

We offer a wide range of soft drinks and mixers to enjoy on their own or to complement your favourite spirits, including Hartridges and Frobishers juices, Fever Tree tonics and Belvoir Presse and Ginger Beer, in addition to our on-tap soft drinks.

Hot Drinks

Using our newly installed, Italian Coffee Machine, our expert barista makes Houghton's best coffee! Cappucinos, Lattes, Americanos and Hot Chocolate always available, as well as liqueur coffees for after dinner.
