FULLER'S BEER TASTING DINNER
Thursday 13th July 2017


On Thursday 13th July we are holding a ‘Beer Tasting Dinner’.  Head Brewer from Fuller’s Brewery, Georgina Young, will host the event.  Georgina will introduce and talk you through each variety of beer, which has been chosen to appeal to both the male and female palette and can be enjoyed by non-beer drinkers too. The evening will include a delicious 4 course menu plus canapés, coffee/tea and petit fours.  Each course will be matched to 2 beers, and you will be invited to rate the beer you prefer.  Here are some facts that you might not know about beer:-

  • It has been said that beer has a wider range of flavours than wine.
  • There is an explosion of new beers in both the UK and across the globe.
  • Beer has been the natural accompaniment to food for centuries; it has every right to be used in fine dining.
  • Some foods like cheese, chocolate and oysters for example are best with beer.

To put your taste buds to the test and discover something new come along and join us for what will undoubtedly be an intriguing and enlightening evening - and great fun too.  The price per person is £55.  T: 01628 620541 or email to book your table.

WINE OF THE MONTH

Chateau Talbot, 4ème Cru Classé 1996

Coravin System
The Coravin system allows us to offer you rare and exclusive wines to taste by the glass so that you pay only a 6th of the price of the bottle to taste a wine you may never have dared to buy before.

Chateau Talbot, 4ème Cru Classé 1996

I love winding up the French and reminding them that so many of their great wines are born of English names, when we once occupied Bordeaux.  So it is with great pleasure I announce that the Château used to be the property of Sir John Talbot, Governor of Aquitaine, Earl of Shrewsbury, in the 15th century.

The vineyard area of Chateau Talbot extends 102 hectares (250 acres).  Located a short distance from the Gironde estuary, it is among the largest in Bordeaux.  The vineyard is on fine gravelly rises, which are well drained.  The distribution of red wine grape varieties is 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot and 4% Petit Verdot. The average age of the vines is 42 years old with a 45 hl/ha yield.

We are offer this great wine, vintage 1996, by the glass for £35!
