Real Ale Devotees Look No Further

A small rustic public house with a great selection of real ales & ciders. Friendly atmosphere & a fine ‘grazing platter’ if you feel the need for a bite to eat with your beer.

Always a relaxed atmosphere every visit. Friendly locals and staff who always have banter. The dog is beautiful. Always a good selection of drinks too. They also have few spirts for those who don't drink beer

Lovely small and quite Ale house (Room) in the middle of the town, the beer was great and the fact the place was no to busy even better.
Not a massive choice, but that didn’t matter great place for a quite beer.

A pub like it should be
Jan 2020
We have visited St GIles Ale House numerous times and have never been disappointed.

This is a pub like they used to be (in a good way!), with no music, a lovely relaxing atmosphere and superb beers. The owner here really knows how to keep his ale and there is always a great selection of excellent beers. There is a good selection of gins for those who want something other than beer.

I am reluctant to praise St Giles Ale House too much for selfish reasons as it is a hidden gem - a haven from the noisy, packed places that sell awful beer, lager and alco-pops. However, if you want the best kept beer in town with a warm and welcoming atmosphere where you can enjoy a conversation this is heaven.

Real ale

The smell of ale as you enter is fantastic. The choice is great and long may it be successful. Of course the beer is top notch, but you can get other drinks as well.

Perfect Beer
Jun 2019 • Friends
Always a wide range of real ales served in a friendly cosy bar not much larger than your own living room by someone who takes obvious pride in what he is doing

Had been meaning to investigate this little pub for some time as it had been the topic of conversation.
I was pleased I did on a rare town centre visit.
As the church bells struck midday the sign slid to open and a number of people including myself wandered in.
I found a perfect high seat at the bar and enjoyed a perfectly kept pint.
In town yet no hustle and bussell,I will call again.

Little gem

First visit here, lovely spot, friendly atmosphere. An oasis in the bustle of town centre. Enjoyed a couple of different beers...one of us doesnt drink so enjoyed the cider and wine.

Rare for me to give a 100% score but...
Feb 2019 • Couples
Started coming here a few months after they opened. Mr 'n' I pop in here every couple of weeks on average. Small pub yes, quiet... til about 10 people are in and the chatter starts flowing :) It's one of the few pubs I love to go in alone, and you can either sit quietly in the corner, enjoy your pint and watch the world go by.... or if you fancy something to chat about, ask the barman for the 'Rant of the Day' to break your boredom :D

Stella the Pub Dog is always a delightful greeter (to check for treats of course!).

Ale is always fresh and mostly changes weekly. Yes, there have been a few I haven't been that stuck on, but never had a bad pint. Tasters available, as well as a 'Beer Tapas' - 3x1/3's of ale (or beer, I guess!)

Cheese and wine night is an absolute win, held on a pubs closed evening.

They do sell a few spirits, wines and soft drinks for the non ale drinkers.

Dominos and cards available if you fancy a couples throwdown.

Great pub, with great beer, no jukebox, no TV. Win.
