Greene King Abbot AleGreene King Abbot Ale 5.0% abv
Hailed by the late beer writer Michael Jackson as "one of the great characters of the beer world", Abbot Ale is brewed for quality of the highest order. Abbot is an irresistible ale with masses of fruit characters, a malty richness and superb hop balance. It is brewed longer to a unique recipe, which makes it the full-flavoured, smooth and mature beer it is today.

Food Review

Went in today as part of a lower gornal crawl. Great pub - good ale choice plus massive cobs with choice of fillings. Meals available "famous gornal smokey sausages" with mash (cheese, BBQ etc). Well worth a visit. Friendly locals too... Kevin Wolverhampton

Pub Review

Extremely busy pub which always has an excellent selection of changing guest beers together with Belgian Lagers and Hoegaarden. Nice and cosy atmosphere with piped music. Good Food available until 9pm ... Hiker
