Fancy a pint? We've got that covered!

The Bald Buzzard is a small, independent ale house serving the freshest and best real ale and craft beer on cask. Bottled beers, ciders, spirits and wines are also available.

Feeling peckish? That's covered, too!

Choose from our selection of light bites, bar snacks and nibbles. If nothing takes your fancy, why not join us for curry, chilli or cheese night?

Fun & games The old fashioned way!

We shun all forms of electronic entertainment, loud music, television, or gaming machines. We enourage old fashioned games like dominoes, cribbage, cards and backgammon, all of which are available to use on the premises.

Breweries & beers

Here are just a few of the breweries whose beers we've had on cask recently. We also serve beer from some of these breweries, like Brewdog and Beavertown in bottles and cans.
