Ludlow Magna Carter {National Beer Day} 15 & 16/6/19

The original Magna Carter signed on the 15th June in 1215 and contained the following clause:

“Let there be throughout our kingdom a single measure for wine and a single measure for ale and a single measure for corn, namely the London Quarter”

To honour this significant date the 15th June is now listed as National Beer Day and as such The Rose & Crown and The Church Inn are holding their own celebration aptly named the Ludlow Magna Carter. This will take place at these two Ludlow pubs on the Saturday & Sunday 15-16th June.

Customers will be able to gain their own Ludlow Magna Carter by taking part in a Beer Trail and sampling 

Eight Beers at The Rose & Crown and the Church Inn (four in each establishment)


Best Bitter                Mild

Golden Ale                Stout

Lager                         Indian Pale Ale
Porter                       Extra Strong Ale


There will be a total of 12 Real Ales on offer at the two pubs and CAMRA members will qualify for a 10% on any of these Ales. (The Rose & Crown is in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide)


There will also be similar trails for customers who prefer wine or gin.


Four Gin’s at The Rose & Crown and the Church Inn (two in each establishment)


Four wine’s at The Rose & Crown and the Church Inn (two in each establishment)
Choice of White, Rose and red Wines


King John will sign Ludlow Magna Carter’s for those who complete over the two day’s Saturday & Sunday 15th-16th June either the Beer Card or Gin Card or alternatively the Wine card.
King John will be situated in the Rose & Crown appropriately near the 12th Century Mullion Window and it’s fitting the original Magna Carter was signed in the 
same century as the pub was recorded as The Rose & Crown and its original deeds date even further back to 1102.

In addition to the above it happens to be “Tapas Day” therefore both pubs will be serving various Tapas to compliment the drinks on offer. Also there will be music and events at both venues through-out the weekend.


Live Music; 

From 12.00 Noon, Saturday the following artists & bands will perform at both venues

Men in Harmony

Shred Belly

Jack Brett & friends
