DRINKS


image of the drinks taps at Ruskins

From 7pm onwards come into Ruskins and taste a variety of beers, real ales, ciders, wines and spirits from around the world and enjoy the friendly and relaxed atmosphere in either of our two bars.

Come into the front bar to enjoy a quiet drink under the low, coloured lighting and down-tempo music. It has a great view over the town centre, which is perfect for drinking and people watching!
The back bar provides more of an upbeat atmosphere complete with pool table, fuseball table, digital jukebox and brighter, colourful lighting.

We are now serving cocktails and shots, so why not come into Ruskins and indulge yourself in one of our very full-flavoured (and alcoholic!) cocktails? We also provide a range of shots, from the classics to the crazy concoctions!

Whatever your night out, Ruskins is the place to be...
