Branch Events

  • Branch Pub and Brewery News (June 2018) Sunday 1 July 2018

    Pub news:

    On 17th May there was a meeting of the people who have pledged to invest in the purchase of the Crown, South Moreton. This resulted in an increased offer to Worthmore Investments, which has been accepted.

    The Keep in Wallingford has installed a cider handpump, drawing the cider from a box under the bar.

    Ye Olde Leathern Bottel, Goring, closed on 13th May. It was once a pub but has been a restaurant, latterly Italian, for many years.

    Brewery news:

    Amwell Springs Brewery in Cholsey is installing a six-barrel plant, with support from Dave Maggs (ex-supremo of West Berks).

  • Branch Pub and Brewery News (May 2018) Tuesday 29 May 2018

    Pub news:

    The Cross Keys in Wallingford has reopened with the availability of quality real ale high on the agenda. Four cask ales sourced from the Marston's subsidiaries, including a weekly changing guest are currently available.

    The campaign to save the Crown, South Moreton, has raised pledges for £230k and this has enabled them to offer the current owner, Worthmore Investments, £340k. The balance would be made up with loans. However, this offer appears to have been turned down because another potential buyer has offered £450k.

    Our award of Pub of the Year to the Flowing Spring, in Playhatch, was generously covered in the Henley Standard, with a shorter article in the Reading Chronicle too.

    There are new tenants in the Cherry Tree, Stoke Row, and the Station House, Henley.

    Brewery news:

    Bell Street has produced a special beer to mark the Royal wedding – Hooray Harry at 4.1%.

    Amwell Spring in Cholsey is planning to produce cask ale in addition to the current bottled range.

    Loddon has a new mild – ‘Wilfreds’. The flavour is dryer than one would expect from a mild.
