Hadn't visited before - interesting range of drinks with a lot of craft beer. Even study drinks were ranges we'd not heard of before. Nice atmosphere, very welcoming - perhaps not places on a Saturday night where people have got their dogs in, with little...More

It’s a great little bar, but it can be very hard to get served when there is only one member of staff and a other customers are having tasting sessions. Ok it’s part of the charm but you need to staff to levels for it...More

Used a Groupon voucher for a beer tasting evening . We tried 5 different beers with cheese accompaniments. It was a very informative evening and we thoroughly enjoyed it.

Wow - a fascinating real ale pub with lots of atmosphere. Sign up for a beer tasting session and learn a lot. Food selection limited and no good if you are gluten-free. Wine expensive but if it is beer you are after, thus is the...More
