Barley Mow Springtime Festival

Our first Springtime beer festival!

Live music Friday night and throughout Saturday and lots of amazing real ales to try.

There will also be a craft gin and cider bar and a yummy hog roast to soak up all the beer!

We put our Hunters Moon Beer Festival on in October and it went down a treat and we always thought we would hold a spring version.

So put it in your diary folks!
