A HEREFORDSHIRE pub has launched a new event celebrating local beers and ciders.

The Kings Head in Docklow, near Leominster, held its first two day celebration of products from Herefordshire and beyond on Saturday, August 20 and Sunday, August 21.

Ales from Wye Valley Brewery, Wobbly Brewery, the Bewdley Brewery and the Ludlow Brewery were complemented with craft ciders from Newton Court, near Leominster.

The pub's spacious beer garden was well used as punters gathered to enjoy food, drink and live music throughout the weekend.


Landlord Paul English said that the weekend had been a success and the pub will be looking to put the event on again next year.

He said that regulars and first timers alike had a great time sampling all the local beers and ciders.

He said: "Being a community village pub, we are always looking at ways to bring everyone together and our customers have a great love for real ales.

"Everyone enjoyed themselves and there was a great atmosphere around the place.

"We will definitely look to put something similar on next year."
