58 Southover Street


Perhaps, the pearl in Indigo Pubs’ chain with a superb range of beers from across the globe – from quality Sussex cask ales with a low carbon footprint to US craft keg flagbearers Brooklyn and Flying Dog. Just a mite off the beaten ale trail in the ‘Muesli Mountain’ heights of Hanover, it feels like a proper, welcoming local, too. Heartily recommended are the innovative beer styles from South Downs-based Burning Sky ‘Artisan Brewers and Blenders’, whose full strength (7per cent ABC) Devil’s Best, packed with Simcoe and Centennial hops is a terrific homage to the best of America’s IPAs. The Southover is also a good place to discover many of the North of England’s best new craft breweries – First Chop, Northern Monk and Magic Rock.
