All the best pubs are a part of their communities, and The DA are really involved in theirs. They support the local area with the suppliers they use, most interestingly bakers The Dusty Knuckle.

All the best pubs are a part of their communities, and The DA are really involved in theirs. They support the local area with the suppliers they use, most interestingly bakers The Dusty Knuckle.

They also make quite astoundingly good artisan bread and baked goods which makes them even easier to support.
