Our Beers

Brewed for you

When you relax with a drink at The Millstone, you’ll discover a well-stocked bar serving the finest Thwaites cask ales.

Daniel Thwaites uses only the finest dark kiln roasted malts, English barley and select fuggles and goldings hops to create this bittersweet dark mild with a deliciously dry finish.

Our award-winning team of five brewers – Brian, Harry, Glyn, Stuart and Mark – have over 125 years of expertise between them and each week they mash hops, barley and brewing liquor to create beers which we’re delighted still carry our forefather’s name.

Our seasonal ales give the team the opportunity to have some fun with flavour combinations, and our guests the chance to savour some beers which are truly unique to us.


Copper Peel, Bitter 3.6% - Brewed with a blend of malts that gives a light copper colour and biscuit background flavour. Pacific Gem and Amarillo hops give this beer an intense Seville orange aroma.

Gold Bullion, Golden 3.9% - With a hint of grapefruit and gentle hops,
this is an easy drinking golden ale.

Handsome Devil, Bitter 4.3% - A 'handsome' chestnut ale flavoured with Bramling Cross hops
giving an aroma of blackberries.

Pastures Brew, Bitter 4.1% - A traditional fruity hop character. This Golden Ale
has plenty of floral and hedgerow berry notes.

Our Wines

For a tipple

We’ve taken great care to make sure our wine list is a crowd pleaser with a wide range of choice. Not just the usual crisp whites but some slightly more adventurous options too sourced from smaller suppliers who pour their heart and soul into every bottle they produce.
