There are several different accounts of the true origin of the gin martini. Some claim
the drink was named after an earlier concoction called a Martinez. Choose gin or
vodka, sweet or dry, shaken or stirred, with a twist or an olive? Or even dirty!

We can make flavoured Martini’s or Daiquiri’s just ask the bartender.
Cuba is the birthplace of the mojito, although the exact origin of this classic cocktail is
the subject of debate.
One story traces the mojito to a similar 16th century drink, the “El Draque,” in honor of
Sir Francis Drake. It was made with tafia/aguardiente, a primitive predecessor of rum.
Mint, lime and sugar were possibly used to hide the harsh taste.

                                   DRAUGHT BEER
Amstel (Holland) 4.1%                                                                             1.50/2.95
Amstel is perfect for washing down those burgers or sausage’s, the brewery was
founded on June 11, 1870 in Amsterdam and named after the Amstel River.

Tiger (Singapore) 5%                                                                              2.05/4.10
This lager pours a medium gold colour. It has a nice nose, with a touch of honey to
quite nettly hop aromas and a bit of grass and corn on the cob quality.

Pilsner urquell (Czech) 4.4%                                                                      1.90/3.80
This pilsner is somewhat heavier (with an almost ale-like fruitiness in the malt body)
and more strongly hopped than most pilsner beers.

Heineken (Holland) 5%                                                                             1.80/3.60
Heineken is made of water, barley, hops, and yeast. In 1886 H. Elion finished the development of the Heineken A-
yeast. This is the yeast that is still used for the beer today.

Bombardier (England) 5.2%                                                                         1.75/3.50
Bombardier uses more malt per pint than any other premium bitter, and the crystal
malt is carefully crushed. This delivers rich flavours and deep colour.

Guinness (Ireland) 4.1%                                                                           1.80/3.60
The creator of Guinness was Arthur Guinness and he founded the first Guinness
brewery in 1759 in James Street, Dublin. Guinness was known as Porter in Ireland
and was a new type of beer. It is brewed by roasting the Barley to give it the unique
colour and taste.

Sierra Nevada pale ale (U.S.A) 5.6%                                                               2.15/4.30
Pale bronze colour, topped by a big fluffy head of foam. The aroma is spicy and peppery from the hops, balanced
by biscuity malt and tart citrus fruit.

Paulaner wheat beer (Germany) 5.5%                                                                2.20/4.40

Regardless of the time of the year, Corona is best served ice cold, with a wedge of
lime that complements and intensifies the flavour through the palate.

Peroni Nastro Azzurro – 330ml (Italy) 5.2%                                                                       3.50
Combining state-of-the-art brewing technology with a traditional recipe born from creative Italian flair over 150 years
ago, high-quality premium lager.

Brewed with lightly kilned lager malt, Vienna malt and German hops to give it that
added aromatic kick of bitterness.

Sam Adams - 330ml (U.S.A) 4.6%                                                                                   3.95
Lovely reddish-amber coloured ale with a moderate head. The nose is well rounded
with traces of dairy, tar and noticeable hops.

Schielhallion - 500ml (Scotland) 4.8%                                                                            4.20
This cask conditioned lager beer is crisp, dry and airy with a beautifully fresh, grapefruity taste.

Blue moon wheat beer – 355ml (U.S.A) 5.4%                                                                        3.90
Blue Moon is a belgian-style wheat ale with more depth of flavour and a unique cloudy

Samuel smiths cherry - 355ml (England) 5.1%                                                                      3.70
Handcrafted for Sam Smith's at the tiny Melbourn Brothers Brewery in Stamford using
manually operated brewing equipment.

The final piece (for now) in the Sam Smith's fruit beer jigsaw. Counter-intuitively we
found this a little sweeter than the cherry beer, with its luscious ripe fruit flavour less
restrained by tart ale characters. A lovely deep red colour and a real mouthfull!

Deus - Champagne beer - 750ml (Belgium) 11.5%                                                                   30.00
Not beer but the divine drink made of barley! In a bottle looking suspiciously like Dom
Perignon this is a heavenly drink. Served ice cold in champagne flutes. Brewed in
Belgium the beer is then sent to the Champagne area of France and treated in exactly
the same manner as champagne.
                            STOUTS AND ALES
Samuel smiths oatmeal stout - 500ml (England) 5%                                                           4.80

Wholesome Stout, which was voted Supreme Champion at the CAMRA Winter Beer
Festival 2002 and was awarded Bronze Medal in the 2005 CAMRA West Midlands
Stout Category, is produced using only the finest ingredients available. They include
Pale malt with roasted barley which produces a rich dark colour. Flaked barley is used

hop varieties Target, Fuggles and Goldings hops. Pours yellowish orange with a
small, creamy, white head.

This cider is produced using organic cider apples and matured in old oak vats which
results in an easy to drink cider with a ripe apple aroma and a refreshing well
balanced taste

Westons perry - 550ml (England) 7.4%                                                                       4.60

Chardonnay grapes from the Côte des Blancs are the primary contributors to that liveliness.
A very smooth wine which never wanes on the palate.

A clever blend of Tocai, Malvasia and Riesling from a great producer, but it’s the great
vintage that has held this wine together so well. Beautiful, sytlish, exotic fruits, some
peach, with plenty of texture on the palate. A rare treat.

Albarino ‘Abadia de San Campio’ Terras Guada,                                               32.00

Chateauneuf du Pape Bosquet des Papes, France 1998                                         75.00

vintage. Mature.

violets, acacia flowers, cherry liqueur, and crème de cassis. The greatest vintage he
has produced.” Robert Parker.
Sangiovese di Maremma ‘Bonizio’ Cecchi, Tuscany, Italy 2006                                    22.00
Very much like Chianti (also made from Sangiovese). Warmer aromas, tobacco and
oak due to low altitude coastal vineyards.

Chianti Classico Castello di Fonterutoli,                                                      37.00

Piemonte, Italy 1998
Weighty, intensely flavoured, very satisfying Barolo. More oomph and power than
elegance. Barolo so often doesn’t meet expectations. We think this does.

Sensational single vineyard Malbec. Fragrant, purple flowers, violet fondants, cassis
and black ink. The blackberry and blueberry fruit is thick but incredibly pure and clean.

Classic leafy, pencil lead, cedar nose nose. Totally mature and drinking very nicely.
The flavours that shout out at you in a first wine, whisper at you in a second wine.
Sarget 1997, the second wine of Gruaud-Larose, is a delight.

Vineyard location West Sussex. From the International Wine Producer of the
Year2008, the Nyetimber Classic has collected a list of awards as long as your arm.
Previously winning Best in Class at the 2006 International Wine and Spirit
Competition. Deep in colour this wine has a beautifully scented bouquet of blossoms.
Delicate fruit of green apples gives the wine an elegance and freshness. The supple
texture is enhanced by a soft lively mousse and long finish. This wine is probably one
of the best sparkling white wines in the world.
This is the fizz every Englishman should be consuming.
