Get in touch

The Growling Shrew, Bottle Shop is still here and loving what we're able to offer you.  We are continuing to showcase a wide and varied selection of amazing craft and traditional beers, ciders and artisan gins from talented small UK independent producers, whilst also having a tailored selection of non-UK products.

We pride ourselves on not stocking the beers, ciders, gins or rums that can be found in supermarkets and national off-licences.
