Family-owned The Woodman Inn at Thunderbridge has a proud tradition of supporting the Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal.

Timothy Taylor’s Landlord pale ale has made a welcome return to the Casque Mark pub, and this year The Woodman Inn has pledged a 10p donation to the Poppy Appeal for every pint sold of the award-winning ale throughout November.

Former publican, a director of The Woodman Inn and seasoned fundraiser, David Woodhead, said: “We have always been proud to do our bit in support of the Poppy Appeal.

“We were not able to do so last year due to the pandemic, nor were we able to have our usual collecting tins on the bar.

“We’re determined to double our efforts this year in honour and recognition of so many of our local veterans who are, sadly, no longer with us.

“The collecting tins already have pride of place on the bar, we’re also making a 10p per pint donation on every glass sold of this champion beer through November.

“We hope our customers will approve of this move and help us to raise funds for the Royal British Legion.”

The award-winning CAMRA Champion Beer of Britain is the perfect accompaniment to head chef Andy Lynam’s new autumn/winter menu which includes venison loin, wild mushroom risotto and pan-roasted turbot.
