Real English Drinks House

Coming soon to Haslemere! A new and exciting bar, cafe, Post Office and retail establishment, owned and run by local people.

Real English Drinks House (Red.h) will be selling a vast array of English craft beers, artisan spirits, fine wines and soft beverages to drink in, taste or take away - we look forward to welcoming you in Spring 2019!

We'll be sourcing delicious nibbles and platters from the local area to graze on, adding to a high quality drinking experience. Red.h has fought hard to save the much-needed Post Office in Haslemere so the Post Office counter will be staying and will become an upgraded and unique feature of our establishment.

We'll also be launching our online store right here very soon, which will be stocking a wide variety of locally sourced gins and spirits, wines and craft beers!

People behind the bar

Redh is the brainchild of two Sussex born guys; Richard Edwards and Douglas Howard.  Great friends from school who have been known to enjoy an occasional drink or two! 

Following an impromptu visit to a small local brewery, they questioned why they had not heard of the quality beer even though it was on their door step?
 The big lightbulb moment followed shortly after!

“Why don’t we create a business that can connect local people with local produce?” They found that many smaller producers struggle to find the time and the resources to promote their craft goods.  That is where Redh will come to the rescue.  Providing a bar to discover, taste and sell predominantly English quality drinks and morsels, plus a website to reach folk further afield.

The beautiful Edwardian Post Office building in Haslemere (Richard and Douglas’ local town) will now become the hub of Redh.  Providing space for a bar/cafe, function area, shop - and as an added bonus the Post Office counter too! The Redh team welcome you to our website, or visit and drink with us in our Haslemere watering hole (no problems if you just buy a stamp!).

How our gin is made

Hand crafted in the beautiful South Downs National Park on the Weyborne Estate, our Real English Gin and Vodka are produced in small batches using a traditional wood-fired copper still and the estate’s own spring water.

We are absolutely thrilled with our Real English Gin. It’s a signature London Dry that celebrates the history of British Gin production using quintessentially English ingredients. So on the nose you get that all familiar juniper and citrusy lemon-zest, then you will taste a little sweetness from the fennel and coriander seed. Finally a touch of clove gives it a spicy depth and a lovely, long finish.

Vodka is not a spirit we used to get that excited about, but this is so special we’ve started sipping it on the rocks… The Weyborne spring water and artisan distilling process makes it the smoothest we’ve ever tasted. If you prefer a longer drinking experience, it mixes to perfection with a slice of lime and old fashioned lemonade.

Our spirits are in production as we speak. We cannot wait to share them with you!
