A vibrant community hub, home to inclusive and creative regular events, cask ales, impromptu folk-sessions, pie competitions, story telling nights, beer festivals, charity events, writers workshops, art exhibitions and established international live music acts.

Beer Festival

On the first weekend in July the Hyde Tavern hosts its own annual beer festival. In addition to its regular 7 cask ales, up to 30 barrels of real ale are sourced from a broad range of local and national breweries and assembled behind the upstairs bar and in the downstairs cellar.

Small ‘third of a pint’ glasses are available for those wishing to sample the majority of the beers and still make it out the door.

There are a variety of food stalls in the garden during the weekend and often there is live music on the cellar stage to accompany the festivities.


Pie Competition

The 2nd weekend in November is Pie Competition time at the Hyde Tavern. Tens upon tens of pies are rushed on to the judges table and the tasting commences. The 3 independent judges are selected each year and there are 3 prizes for the winners, given at the discretion of the judges.

Everyone is welcome to contribute a pie to the competition! You can chose a sweet or savoury pie, its up to you! The only rules are the pie must have a pastry top, bottom & sides to be entered and must be delivered to the judging table on time! There can only be one winner but all the pies will be enjoyed by everyone with a side of mash potato and vegetables provided by the Hyde Tavern.
