Mark Kerr and his family have run The Canny Man’s for five generations. A free house, it only sells the best of each brewer’s produce – but it is also well known for its perfect Bloody Mary, made famous by Rick Stein’s Food Heroes.
Mark explains that this drink was invented in Harry’s Bar in the 1920s in Paris but please try the best one at the Canny Man’s.
