Food & Drink

The Cotton Arms was recently awarded CAMRA summer Pub of the Year

We have a well stocked bar with a wide range of cask ales, lager, cider, wines and spirits. We usually stock 7 real ales so you will be able to find a mixture of amber, pale and dark varieties! We also stock a range of bottled and canned craft ales and lagers. 

Our top shelf carries an ever expanding range of gins (30 at the last count) and some hand picked malt whiskies along side the usuals and a couple of interesting inclusions. 

All our food is freshly cooked to order and our menus are regularly updated
