We opened in April 2012 in the former Dean's Toy Store
(where seemingly everyone in Congleton got their first bike). Apparently Mr Dean had seen a drawing of Bonnie Prince Charlie hiding in our cellar, so we gave our bar this otherwise irrelevant name. Part of our building is seriously old - check out the beams in the front part of the building - apparently our 'no. 30' was the oldest building on the street, once called Lawton Farmhouse.
We have 10 keg fonts
of European/craft beers, and 5 continually rotating cask ales on the bar, as well as real cider, Frizzante 1754 Prosecco on tap, and fridges rammed with bottled beers from all over the world.
We serve the best coffee in town
and our 5 star awarded kitchens provide quality food all day - from sandwiches and snacks, through to meat and cheese platters, to hearty, locally-made award winning (Great North Pie Co) pie meals.
hosting all manner of events - live music, Congleton SciBar, language conversation groups, film nights, craft nights, charity quizzes, 'Meet The Brewer' evenings ~ check out our Events page for details. Most are free entry and newcomers are always welcome, as are ideas for new groups. We have lots of space and like nothing more than sharing it with local community groups so if you'd like to hold a meeting here, just get in touch.
