How the REAL ALE TRAIL WORKS….
It’s fairly simple. A bus chauffeurs you all day through spectacular countryside to rural pubs. Every half an hour or so, a bus will appear at each pub on the trail to ferry you to the next pub. You can visit as many or as few pubs as you want and stay at each one for as long as you want. It’s that simple.
We make a beeline for quirky, off the beaten track and hidden pubs – you may well never have heard or visited them before – where real ale and great hospitality is their thing. The real pleasure of the festival comes from exploring pubs and ales you’ve never tried before, without worrying about driving.
