This is a very small ale house selling locally sourced bespoke beer, this is well worth a visit,the beer is kept under superb conditions and it shows. If you are ever in Leighton Buzzard drop in for a pint you won't regret it.

Great little real bar in centre of town. Very pleasant landlord with a good selection of ales and ciders. Great chat with the locals who helped make the hour I spent here very enjoyable . Had a pale ale and a cider, both very tasty.
