Breweries, pubs & clubs often struggle to survive through the month of January due to various well meaning 'Dryanuary' initiatives.
However there is much to discover and enjoy responsibly as the new year unfolds. At Kissingate we are well known for our dark beers including speciality milds, porters and stouts. So if your only experience of a dark beer was that Guinness you tried all those years ago you may be in for a very pleasant surprise! Our multi award winning beers are here waiting for you to sample and throughout January we are offering free tasters and a some beery banter to help you discover the beer you never knew existed.
All can be enjoyed in our lovely bar and if you fancy a bite to eat while you're here please or call us on 01403 891335
