A selection of our cocktails

Otter Tarka Four Lager

Tarka Four makes a refreshing change to its international competitors in bars across the south west & beyond. As the name might suggest, Tarka Four is lower in alcohol than Tarka Lager, 4% compared to 4.8%. This makes it a fine ‘session’ lager designed for drinking several pints, whilst chatting with friends in the pub. Visit Otter Brewery.

Sam’s Cider Poundhouse Crisp

Sam’s Poundhouse Crisp is a medium cider. It’s clean, crisp & refreshing, a real thirst quencher and is our most popular cider. This Devon cider is a testament to local business, their devotion to making a high quality & unique product is truly on display & noticeable on the first sip.
