Donnington Brewery, to which we are attached, has produced its beers by much the same recipe & way for well over 150 years. The brewery itself - a truly beautiful place to brew beer - is only a few miles away.

Spring water (or in brewing terms 'liquor') is drawn from the Cotswold spring beside the mill pond and used as the main ingredient along with barley, malt and hops.

The original mill is still used in the brewing process and the mill wheel drives some of the machinery used by the brewery.

Every pint really is 'a taste of the Cotswolds'!

B.B. abv 3.6%

A pleasant amber bitter with a slight hop aroma, a good balance of malt and hops in the mouth and a bitter aftertaste.

S.B.A. abv 4.4%

Malt dominates over bitterness in the subtle flavour of this premium bitter, which has a hint of fruit and a dry, malty finish.

Cotswold Gold abv 4.0%

Our latest permanent, award-winning beer has a golden colour with a citrus flavor followed by a rounded malt finish.

Double Donn abv 4.4%

Nutty aroma with toffee and a trace of orange fruit. Sweetish, chewy, cereal malt flavour with an earthy edge and decent bitter finish.
