The Thomas Tallis Alehouse serves a wide range of beers from the cask, from key keg and in bottles and cans. We offer over 30 beers at any one time. The beer selection will constantly change as we seek new and exciting brews from around the world so don’t get too attached to a particular beer!

Alongside the beers we have a selection of great wines including from the fabulous Barnsole Vineyard at Staple, near Ash. We also stock prosecco.

Ciders also feature and will be showcasing the excellent cider makers of Kent. As with the beers the cider selection will change so you can sample the wide range that exists.
