Ranmore Ale

Surrey Hills : Ranmore Ale ABV 3.8%

A straw coloured extremely moreish session beer that has a surprisingly full flavour for its strength. A pleasant and distinctive aroma is followed by a moderate hop bitterness. The fresh finish leaves you wanting another… Ranmore has a commitment among its followers like no other and the ideal circumstances for drinking this legendary beer are standing at the bar with several good friends, possibly friends you may have made that very evening. It also accompanies many fish dishes rather nicely.

The beer has a long finish, which is moderately dry.The Surrey Hills flagship and the perfect beer for almost any occasion, it is almost impossible to list all the times and places for drinking Shere Drop.

Black Swan

Thameside : Black Swan ABV 4.6%

Award Winning "Porter of the Festival" award at Woking Beer Festival in November 2016, as well as the "Beer of the Festival" at Hampton Beer Festival in June 2017. A classic London porter with lots of brown, chocolate and crystal malts, it gives a wonderfully rich roasted flavour. Perfect for the autumn and winter, (but great all year round!), the award-winning porter is a splendid example of an old-style London Porter, complete with an eclectic mix of malt and hops, including Fuggles and Goldings, to give it a smooth malt taste with notes of chocolate and coffee. Black Swan Porter was voted "Porter of the Festival" at Woking Beer Festival in November 2016 and won "Beer of the Festival" at Hampton Beer Festival in June 2017.

Egyptian Goose

Thameside : Egyptian Goose ABV 4.8%

A traditional old fashioned, full bodied English IPA. We based it on an old English IPA recipe and use Fuggles and Goldings, but dry hop with US Cluster hops (which were perhaps surprisingly available and used in this country 150 years ago) for a very complex but nicely balanced beer.

Mallard Mild

Thameside : Mallard Mild ABV 3.5%

A traditional dark mild, that is both sweet and malty. Using both traditional Fuggles and Golding hops, this seasonal beer is brewed in the spring, in conjunction with CAMRA’s “Make May Mild Month” campaign.

Hoppy US style pale ale, bursting with Chinook and Columbus hops from Washington State in the US Northwest, to give it a gorgeous citrus flavour

Gallows Pale Ale

The Park Brewery : Gallows Pale Ale ABV 5.0%

A sweet golden pale, hopped with Simcoe and Mosaic, providing a fine fruity mix of tropical and mango flavours with a rich aroma. This beer takes its name from the gallows which once stood at Kingston Gate.


The Park Brewery : Killcat ABV 3.9%

A refreshing pale ale with the hoppiness and punch of an IPA, but session strength. Citrusy, floral flavours from the New Zealand hop, Motueka, with a lingering bitterness from Chinook. This beer takes its name from the sinister sounding Killcat Corner on the east side of Richmond Park, the origin remains a mystery.


Tillingbourne : Dormouse ABV 3.8%

Brewed in conjunction with Surrey Wildlife Trust to help protect the habitat of the Hazelnut Dormice which live in the woods behind the brewery. This is our smooth easy drinking Traditional English Ale which is chestnut in colour and light on the pallet.

Falls Gold

Tillingbourne : Falls Gold ABV 4.2%

A superb golden ale with a soft fruity nose. A bitter apricot front is followed by more soft fruits and a charming light hoppiness. This was our first regular beer from the Tillingbourne stable and remains our best seller. It was brewed to be light, golden, slightly hopped session ale, with a taste appealing to everyone. It is very easily drunk and complements most meals as its clean taste does not overpower flavours of most dishes.


Tillingbourne : Source ABV 3.3%

An extremely refreshing light golden ale that tastes well above its ABV thanks to being dry hopped with plenty of Citra hops. The perfect light ale to quench your thirst. Despite only being 3.3%, it tastes well above its weight and has been labelled “The Drivers Ale”. The second generation of this beer has been dry hopped with even more Citra.


Twickenham Fine Ales : Grandstand ABV 3.8%

A well-hopped and well balanced refreshing amber session beer. Triple hopped with Brewers Gold gives light citrus notes and a fresh clean finish. The one beer to have when you’re having more than one. Won CAMRA Champion Bitter of London 2018

Very pale, very hoppy beer which is the Essence of Summer. Extra pale ale and wheat malts combine with the aromatic Citra and Delta hops to make a very bright and refreshing pint for a warm summer’s day.
