Real Ales


At the Smugglers we take our Ale very seriously, accredited by Cask Marque we are pleased to present two house Ales, the very popular rich golden Doom Bar and the light crisp and citrusy Atlantic, which are supplemented by a third Guest Ale from one of our local Breweries such as Georges Brewery in Wakering, or Hope Brewery from Stamford Le Hope, or Billericay Brewery.

The aroma of Doom Bar combines an accomplished balance of spicy resinous hop, inviting sweet malt and delicate roasted notes. The mouthfeel is perfectly balanced with a complex blend of succulent dried fruit, light roasted malty notes and a subtle yet assertive bitterness. The bitterness remains into the finish with dry fruity notes that implore the drinker to go back for more.

Atlantic is a modern pale ale that captures the essence of Sharp’s home on the rugged north coast of Cornwall. It is brewed with Sharp’s trademark precision to give complexity, subtlety and a cleanness of palate while showcasing the fresh citrus flavours of New World hops.

Grolsch has a distinctive, bold and hoppy taste that has been developed through almost four centuries of brewing tradition.
