From chocolate orange stouts to dry-hopped pale ales and classic lagers, Poppy and Pint is a fabulous shout for craft beer. While sipping on your drink, wolf down a stacked burger and look forward to a jam-packed live music sets on the regular.

Located right on Rufford Way, The Willow Tree promises an excellent craft beer selection, as well as some pretty scrumptious nosh. We mean lasagna, pork belly mains and lamb shanks. When you're done chowing down, get competitive over a game of darts or pool.
