Adnams Brewery

We are proud currently to be Adnams' longest serving Landlord and Landlady, having been with them for nearly thirty years.

Established in 1872, Adnams is probably best-known as a brewer of beer in the coastal town of Southwold in Suffolk.

Whilst brewing remains at the heart of Adnams, they also make a range of award-winning spirits, from the same locally-sourced grains as they make their beers, in the Copper House Distillery.

Wine and Spirits

We stock a range of wines supplied by Adnams, whose reputation as a wine merchant has grown over 30 years.

We can cater for all tastes - red, white, rosé or fizz.

Adnams do not themselves make any wines, but source the best from around the world, and we offer wines from France, Chile, Sicily, Italy and Spain, amongst others.


Adnams have only been distilling since 2010, but have already gained a great reputation for their gin.

One of them was even voted “World’s Best Gin 2013.”

Adnams Copper House Gin is made with juniper berries, orris root, coriander seed, cardamom pod, sweet orange peel and hibiscus flower.

The cardamom & hibiscus flower burst through in the gin. It’s a touch oily and has a particular mouth feel – perfect for a Dirty Martini.
