I was not aware of this place but I looked out of the window of the Farmers Boy and there it was, well I just had to enter. A good selection of bottled beers from around Europe and two cask ales on along with some keg beers.

17:00 More of a bottle shop and a takeaway cask beer business than the Chesham brewery shop with minimal seating in the form of just a few upturned casks in the window. That said we were made very welcome. A very tempting range of bottled beers, lots of rather rare brews. Chap serving very informative.
