Boost for the Beer Quarter

The Milton Brewery is set to open its first Cambridge-based pub in January after taking ownership of the Devonshire Arms. The Devonshire was like the Kingston, pre-makeover: a pub with no beer.

This move by the Milton Brewery will add lustre to the Petersfield/Romsey area, known to my friends as the 'Beer Quarter' for the high density of pubs with great real ales.

The Empress, The Blue, The Salisbury, The Live and Let Live, the Kingston Arms and the Geldart will have a new rival but also yet another reason for people to visit. Enjoy!


  1. That is excellent news, but the critical question is whether it will still be serving on Thursday nights after all the planning applications have been determined at East Area Committee?

  2. If they are, Andrew, you can wish them mud in their eye!
