See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

This smart conversion from a newsagent to a Micro Pub opened in July 2018. An L-shaped room has some exposed brickwork and renovated sash windows. There are four Real Ales from interesting local and sometimes national micro-breweries. There are plans to introduce a Real Cider. A half a dozen craft ales normally feature a Stout and a Lager - at least one will be keykeg but you will need to confirm with the bar staff. Mark (the owner) is also building the bottled beer side of the business back to the levels when he was a newsagent/off-license and currently stocks upwards of 60 different beers for (drink in or) take away. Good range of gins and wines, and there are plans to introduce some basic snacks such as crisps. nuts and pork pies.
