    The marquee doors (if that's what you call them?) open from midday on Friday 5th June for our 2 day beer festival.

    Music from The Maxxx on Friday night, followed by The Magpies Saturday afternoon and The Mimmics Saturday night.

    We have a selection of beers and ales from Marstons, Titanic, Joules, Salopian, Wye Valley, Slaters and Lymestone.

    Not even the rain can stop this event!!!!

    I seem to remember there is/was a local cider maker down by Weston on the A5?

    Thank you very much for that information. I tried the Hurst View cider a couple of years ago at the Stone Food and Drink festival. I think I've heard of Woody's but never tried it.
