Ball and Chain wedding ale for Alex and Alice
27-year old head brewer Alex Arkell has been keeping himself busy in the run up to his wedding later this month to long-time sweetheart Alice Braithwaite.
80-year old Dot Gasson, probably Britain’s oldest working landlady, has finally decided to call last orders on a career spanning almost sixty years and well over two million pints pulled.
Wiltshire brewery, Arkell’s will take delivery of over £200,000 of new beer barrels over the next five years.
Wiltshire Brewery Arkell’s is delighted to announce that it has acquired The Fox and Hounds at Haydon Wick in Swindon and The King’s Arms Hotel in Malmesbury, both purchased from Enterprise Inns. The brewery paid market price for the pubs.
Less than 24 hours after taking over the tenancy of The Rose & Crown at Lea near Malmesbury, Mark Green and Sarah Smith found themselves providing breakfast for 44 members of the church, next door to the pub.
Nearly half of Arkell’s landlords have now been awarded Cask Marque accreditation for serving the perfect pint of cask-conditioned ale.
Rural pubs have to produce something special for it to be worth a trip out of town but The White Horse at Woolstone, between Swindon and Faringdon, has done just that.
Two golds and a silver for Arkell’s Beers

Arkell’s Kingsdown and Moonlight both achieved gold awards at this year’s Taste of the West awards, with Bee’s Organic achieving silver.
If they look carefully, former customers of the Three Tuns at Wroughton, who are NOT fans of Swindon Town Football Club, might recognise the bar at the football club’s brand new Away bar.
