The guys from Vinyl Revolution are back for their latest pop-up and music takeover. They’re bringing a heap of new and vintage LPs with them, including plenty of old and new-school sounds, plus some super-cool merch, and a stash of records from co-founder Simon Parker’s personal collection to spin throughout the day. Swing by for a pint and pick up some great new records.

Tunbridge Wells Independent Farmers’ Market are hosting us as part of their top picks of local bars, pubs, cafés and restaurants. We’ll be in Market Square showcasing some of our favourite beers, which we’ll be pouring and selling over the weekend. There will be loads of delicious food available, as well as a Local & Live stage!

This summer, we’re gearing up for a season of music festivals at both sites. In Tunbridge Wells, we’ll be running a bar at Local & Live in Calverley Grounds from August 23-25, while Tonbridge Calling are likewise welcoming us on August 10 at Racecourse Park – both promise to be brilliant days out for families and beer lovers alike, so bring the kids and make a day of it.

What’s happening


New food at Fuggles

We’ve updated our menus with some new bites, including tasty dishes suitable for vegetarians and vegans. Head to Tunbridge Wells or Tonbridge for our Panzanella Tuscan chopped salad, ‘The Vegan’ and ‘The Nduja’ cheese toasties, Moroccan flatbread with bulgur wheat tabbouleh, oak-smoked sundried tomatoes and hummus, alongside the latest additions to our charcuterie and cheeseboards. And from 12-3pm, Monday to Friday, grab any toastie or salad and a pint of beer or glass of wine for £7.50!


A word from our Cheese Guy, Doug White…

“We treat our menu like our beer, and are on the lookout for exciting producers making great products for the love of it. Our dishes are designed to showcase the craft of these producers, and complement our drink offering, so we recommended matching a few plates with a few brews. There’s a heavy vegetarian/vegan influence on the new additions, and we’d love to know what you all think!”


Some of our latest beers

This year, Northern Monk paired with the North’s best breweries and tattoo artists to create a box of seven beers from the Northern Powerhouse Brew Series! Comprising Track, North, Donzoko, Wylam, Buxton, Cloudwater and By The River, this seven-can selection also features amazing artwork by Marko Prenger, Lucy O’Connell, James Butler, Kevin Keates, Alex Bage, Ruth Jamieson and Barney Rushworth. Available from Thursday to take away only, it’s £35 for the full set.


Alex’s beer of the month

Broaden & Build ‘Inoculate’ 3% 330ml can

Gose with salted rhubarb and beetroot. Earthy, slightly sweet/sour, with the rhubarb pulling it all together. Gose is a very traditional German style of beer – kind of somewhere between a farmhouse ale and a sour beer, with a subtle saltiness (attributed to the water they used to use locally). Super-refreshing and a perfect summer sipper from our friends at Broaden & Build in Copenhagen, brewing beers with zero-waste in mind.


Supplier shout-out

As Tempus Foods, Tom Whitaker and Dhruv Baker have been making charcuterie since 2014. Awarded Overall Champion Producer at the inaugural British Charcuterie Awards 2018, and named Grand Master Charcutier of Great Britain 2019, you’ll find their slowly-cured house salami on our British Charcuterie board, served simply with black pepper. Meticulously spiced charcuterie from consistently excellent single-breed pigs and ex-dairy cattle – take our word for it: These guys are the real deal!
