The Hand in Hand has been handing out beers willy-nilly for over 150 years. Beers have been brewed here since 1989 and sloshed into jugs very, very soon after (about three weeks). When you're not in the Hand, you're probably out cycling or playing volleyball or curbsies or something, but we're always here waiting for you to finish that and come here... and then drink the beer (or anything else).



Here's all about what the pub's all about; mainly beer, mostly beer and nearly always beer. There might be something about other things too.

We also make beer. Here. In the Hand in Hand. We're currently warming up the beast and hope to have some on the pumps soon.
