Proud to be accredited with the Cask Marque
What is The Cask Marque? It is an accreditation awarded to the licensees of a pub for the quality of their cask ales. Throughout the year they are visited unannounced by an independent assessor. They are assessed on temperature, appearance, aroma, and taste. An outlet sporting the Cask Marque logo is a good indication of a great tasting pint, perfectly served.To date, approximately 1 in 7 pubs have attained this award.
