ABC Wednesday: F is for Flowery Field Free House

On the corner of Well Meadow and Spring Gardens is a public house called the Flowery Field. It is a "free house" but that doesn't mean they give the drink away. The term is used to distinguish it from a "tied house" which is owned by a brewery. Landlords of tied houses are only allowed to sell beer brewed or approved by the brewery. Free house landlords are free to to buy and sell the wares of different producers.

As a non-drinker myself I cannot tell you anything more specific about what you might find inside.
