We exist to introduce people to snug rural pubs that stock local microbrewery ales. Found usually in picturesque locations, we love Pubs that are located in the middle of fields or tucked away at the base of a mountain who showcase delicious local ales, some only available for the trail.

We identify and invite all the best pubs to take part, they must sell ale throughout the year and provide great hospitality. We will always have at least 8 pubs on the trails for you to visit. The trails never seem to stay the same due to changes in the pubs each year.

The Real Ale Trail Company intends to grow and bring smiles to other counties in need of a cheery festival. If you would  like a trail to come to a town near you. Do drop us a line.
