Grate the Cheddar cheese. Warm the Southwold pale ale.


  1. 1 Melt the butter in a small sauce pan and add the flour, cooking over a medium heat for a couple of minutes to make a roux.
  2. 2 Stir in the warm beer a little at a time until the sauce is thick and smooth. Add the cheddar, mustard and Worcestershire sauce.
  3. 3 Lightly toast the crumpets, then spoon the rarebit generously over each. Toast under the grill until golden and bubbling. Season with pepper to taste.
