The New Inn are proud to announce our fourth real-ale event of the year. We’re holding a brewery ‘takeover’ of the pub between Thurs 13th - Sun 16th October.
For 4 days, Bishop Nick will be showcasing 5 of their ales with a guest beer from Felstar Brewery. Nelion is the sixth generation of the Essex brewing family who established Ridley’s on the banks of the River Chelmer in 1842. With his Braintree based craft brewery, Bishop Nick, he remains devoted to good honest beer.... And as we are keeping this event inside the pub, it’s very likely that one of the Bishop Nick team will be serving you your drinks !
For this event, we will run a limited food menu inside the pub rather than do a weekend BBQ. Scotch Eggs (3 flavours) & Onion Pakoras (vegan) from our main menu will be available Thursday to Saturday. We will also be running a full Sunday Lunch Menu from 12-5pm on Sunday with the offer of a free pint of ale for every adult lunch bought (booking strongly advised).
