The Oat Hill, Market Harborough, May 2017

A mini review. We visited as part of the Spirit of Harborough festival, so we didn’t sample the normal things at the pub, just the free beer (and vodka) tastings as part of the offering for the festival.

We arrived at the bar as the first festival visitors of the day, so the friendly bar staff cracked open four bottles of beer and shots of Bakewell Tart vodka for us to try. We took these out to the beer garden to sit and sip in the sunshine, ruminating on the beers and enjoying the surroundings.

We tried a selection from The Langton Brewery, who are just down the road. You can see Bower, a decent session bitter, Bullseye Stout (probably better on cask), Welland Fox (some middle of the road refreshment) and Hop On, which delivered some pleasant fruity bitterness.

The pub itself looks lovely, with friendly staff, so I’m sure we’ll be back the next time that we are here. The beer garden is nice and secluded and would be perfect for a lazy lunch or summer evening meal – the food looks great too.
