Our Beers

We take quality seriously. We know how important it is to cask drinkers – in fact to all drinkers. That’s why, for instance, all our beers are tested in our labs every step of the way. So when they arrive in our pub’s cellar, they’re in immaculate condition. Then it’s over to our licensees to pour the perfect pint.

Our family of ales includes heritage brews such as Old Tom (first brewed in 1899 and winner of the World’s Best Ale) and Unicorn (born in 1896 and a gold medal winner at the Brewing Industry International Awards).

We also offer lively young ales such as Dizzy Blonde and TROOPER (a beer created in collaboration with heavy metal rock legends Iron Maiden).

The Robinsons range consists of a wide selection of permanent cask ales, speciality keg and smooth ales, and a variety of unique seasonal ales that change every two months throughout the year (giving our customers the chance to sample something extra special).

For those finishing touches, we also have our own innovative pump clip designs that feature a tab system at the top and bottom, as well as a variety of materials, including slate, wood and tile. Click here for more information.

Our Shires

Bobek (8 years old) and Mojo (4 years old) are the latest in a long line of Shire horses which, apart from a brief interruption during the First World War when all horses were sold for war duties, have served Robinsons Brewery for over 100 years.

In their heyday, before the arrival of the internal combustion engine, Robinsons Shires were in the main brewery yard working every day to deliver traditionally brewed ales to local inns and hostelries. However their primary use was inter-brewery work: moving bottles and cases between Unicorn and Hempshaw Brook fantastic in the 1950’s. The Shires also moved cinders from the main yard, spent hops and waste paper
