About this real ale

The Dyke is said to have been formed by the Devil as he tried to cause a flood on the downs. Fortunately, he was scared away when a local woman plucked a feather from her roosters tail, causing it to crow ! We’d like to think the locals would have enjoyed toasting his departure with a nice warming glass of our porter!

Tasting Notes

Locally sourced honey is added to our fabulously soft, rounded porter. Hints of honey complement the chocolate, smokey and marmalade flavours that have made the regular brew so popular.
