Members' guests are welcome when entertainment is provided, but are asked to pay a £2 fee.

Across the Bar - Drinks

As a private members' club, all drinks are owned collectively and 'supplied' by members, to members. This means that no-one takes a profit from the business. Therefore prices are very much lower than in pubs.

The range of drinks on offer is impressive, too. There is (subject to change) Adnams Bitter, Eagle IPA and a Two Guest Ales all on hand pump, with other products like Fosters, Carlsberg, Becks Vier, San Miguel, John Smiths, Guinness, Kingstone Press Cider, Westons Guest Cider and a wide range of bottled beers, wines, spirits and soft drinks.

Tea and coffee are always available.


The Club sells a wide range of confectionery, crisps and savoury snacks.

Light snacks such as filled rolls are also available at the same times and may be available at other times by request.
