Trawling through the newspaper archives looking for "Mild Ale" I came upon this intriguing advert. It took me a while to work out which brewery it was for. But "A Century of British Brewers plus plus" came to my aid. It's King's of Syresham, a village in Northamptonshire.
The wording of the advert is rather flowery:
"The brewery in lovely country surroundingsHere's the advert:
Drinks worth drinking
Prices worth studying
In addition to the above well-known Brands, we are brewing a much Stronger Ale, known as "Special Dinner Ale.”
As with all our beverages, we guarantee to use only the very best and purest materials obtainable, this and the fact that we brew in the Lovely Country account for the enormous success of all our ventures.
PHONE- „ No. 2.
Our Travellers cover a very wide area and are only too pleased to take your orders."

Not sure I believe the stuff about the finest materials. Everyone and his dog claimed that. No matter what muck they actually threw in.
One last thing. I love the phone numbe: 2. I wonder who had number 1?
