Latest News

Bit of an update -
Thanks for all your orders and popping by.
Anne-Marie has worked her socks off and got the stock back on the shelves. While i've been dropping off orders.

Due to the restrictions certain things have moved around and stock in some parts is low but we have lots of stuff, as we were due to be closed for a month and as most suppliers have been closed this week due to the pubs being closed. But we have stock coming next week.

We are open normal hours but these will change from Sunday so we can be out doing deliveries. Keep an eye on here for more info.

Don't forget we are contact less only due to the social distancing in place.

Thanks again for the support over these testing times.

Update re coronavirus

Coronavirus update

As you know we are a shop that you can drink in, the latest information from the government is to avoid pubs etc etc.

At the moment we are carrying on with drinking in although this is a small area of the shop it provides a large section of our business. Until told we can't. Like many business until we are told not to open, insurance will not cover for closure.

As always everything is anti bac wiped down and is being done even more. If your unwell please take the advice to stay at home.

Where possible we request the use of contactless payment.

In terms of take home bottle and cans we are offering free home delivery in most areas as per our last post.
Some stock lines might be out of stock due to us having to suspend our next importing trip to Belgium as well as being able to access products from other UK importers along with the down turn in trade.

In the next few weeks we have a few shop events some of them private and we will be talking to the groups regarding them, our beer tasting on Easter Saturday is expected to take place but our camra award night might be postponed. We will update this as soon as possible.

Remember to support independent businesses at this time.

Winter Pork stew with Yorkshire cider

Winter Pork stew with Yorkshire cider

2 Tbsp of Yorkshire rapeseed oil
600g of diced pork 
1 chopped onion
2 chopped carrots 
2 chopped celery sticks
4 slices of bacon diced 
250ml of dry Yorkshire cider 
2 chopped apples
1 chicken stock
1 bay left
3 thyme sprigs
140g of creme fraiche
1 tbsp of dijon mustard

Heat half the oil in a large pan and brown the meat in batches. When one batch is cooked, tip it into the slow cooker and continue with the next batch, adding more oil as you need it.

When all the meat has been transferred to the slow cooker, add the onion, carrots and celery to the pan and cook for 5-10 mins to just soften. Tip the veg into the slow cooker. Add the bacon to the pan and fry until crispy. Pour in the cider, bubble for 1 min, tip the cider and bacon into the slow cooker too. Add the apples, stock cube and herbs to the slow cooker, pour in 400ml water, season well and turn the heat to Low. Cover with the lid and cook for 6-8 hrs until the meat is very tender. Or cook in the over on a low to med heat for 3/4 hours.

Turn your slow cooker up to High. Add the crème fraîche and mustard to the stew and check the seasoning. If the sauce is thin, you can thicken it with the cornflour – ladle 2 spoonfuls of the sauce into a pan and bring to a simmer, mix the cornflour with 1-2 tsp cold water to make a paste, then stir it into the sauce. Once thickened, return the sauce to the slow cooker and cook for 10 mins more on High, stirring occasionally (or for 5 mins on the hob). 

Serve with mashed potato
