It is with sadness that we close the pub on Christmas Eve 2020 for the foreseeable future. Please watch here and on our social media for updates.
The Tippling Philosopher is a family run 16th century free house owned and managed by Dave & Di Belcher who have been in the trade for over 27 years.
There is a comprehensive range of Lager and Cider, but the speciality of the house is the ever changing real ales. Where possible 3 are available and they change day-by-day. Some regular brews come back two or three times a year, others appear but once in a blue moon. With the new addition of “Tipps Best” a regular “fair priced” ale of the house choice.
Food is also a very important part of the pubs business and Dave (who does all the cooking), is rightly proud of the menus on offer. There are speciality nights, 2 for £25 Steak Night and even a Theme night one Thursday a month when bookings are always recommended. There are extensive bar menus including snacks for those in a rush! See here for all the menus.
There is a modest Wine List catering for most tastes and, very reasonably priced! An abundance of gins and huge range of soft/non-alcoholic drinks too!
And if that’s not enough, Barbecues and an annual Gin & Cider festival in the summer, Quiz Nights, Skittles, Pool and Darts!
