Discover Our Bar

Here at the Willow and Brook, we pride ourselves on using local suppliers and companies wherever possible. This is not only reflected in the menus, but in the selection of beverages we offer. From our wine and spirits to our real ales and ciders, our ethos of local products is paramount. We have teamed up with some of the best providers of liquid refreshments so we can offer something ‘a little different’.
