Cobbett’s is a small, independent Beer Shop since 2010, owned by Tim & Helen Sullivan. The Micropub opened in 2014

The shop is named after William Cobbett, a family ancestor, who was born in the “Jolly Farmer” in Farnham in the 1760′s.

Cobbett wrote a number of books, including “Cottage Economy” (1823), in which he gives the cottager information about how to brew beer. He deplored the growing practice of drinking tea (‘kettle slops’) and recommended that every cottager brewed and drank his own good beer.

Cobbett’s was born after Tim made a joke about having his own beer shop and Helen took him seriously.

"You never know what you can do till you try"
