Real Ales and Ciders at the Tom Cobley Tavern

Here at the Tom Cobley Tavern we are an award winning pub. We are well known for serving local fine real ales and real ciders.


Our Real Ales

During the summer months up to 5 real ales are served at any one time from the hand pumps at the bar. Our staff are always on hand to help you make a decision with their wealth of real ale knowledge and of course a quick taste!!


We have the 'LocAle' accreditation from CAMRA as we serve real ales from breweries within a 30 mile radius from us. We always try to support local producers from our area where we can.

Our Ciders

We have 23 ciders available at any one time. We serve up to 14 real ciders and 3 real perrys at any one time, from cider makers in the local area and beyond, 4 of these are on draught making them sparkling. The other 6 ciders are made from concentrate but still taste great!! These include a variety of fruit ciders, some of which are sparkling and perries from the local area and beyond. 

If you are stuggling to decide from our vast selection our cider board on display lets you know if our ciders are sweet, medium or dry and we have tasting notes available to help you make your decision. Of course you can always ask our staff for their advice and even ask for a taster before you commit yourself to a half or pint!!


Why not make the decision before you visit? Click here to view our cider tasting notes for 2024.


Of course, we do like to have some local guest real ciders available just to give you that little bit more choice on the day of your visit!!
