IF VARIETY is the spice of life, then punters at The Plough, in Icklingham, must be happier than most.

Last Thursday, the village pub pulled through a barrel of Cliff Quay ale – the 150th beer to go through its pumps in the last three years.

Carlton Read, pub manager, said their wide selection was down to a hefty contacts book.

“We have got a vast portfolio of different breweries we use and we always try and keep it as local as possible.

“Most people have 10 or 12 beers on but we have got more choice,” he said.

More than 13,000 pints have been poured in the three years and the constant changes mean bar staff have to be on top of their game.

“There’s nothing worse than a dirty glass or bad pint, so we take great care,” he said.
