A Marble outlet in the Northern Quarter proper (as opposed to the Marble Arch which a little bit out of the way). The couple of times I've been in it's been rather warm so have sat outside and watched the crowds pass by. The beer as you'd expect from Marble is very good, although can be a little flat as it dispensed from gravity and not sparklered. It is quite a small place, with perhaps seating for 15 people at most indoors. A place to pop in on a crawl but you don't tend to get many people spending a long time in here. Very close to lots of other good pubs and cheap take away joints.

It's been a while since I updated this review despite visiting loads of times during the last couple of years. We called in again last night and nothing has really changed. Two Marble beers available and my pint of Draft was excellent as usual. Sat with a friendly bunch at the long table. It's still a decent place to call in.
This is the latest venture from the Marble Brewery. As it's in the Northern Quarter (N/4) it's always going to be quirky. It's only one small room. There's a 3 seater sofa on the left as you enter and one long table that can seat about 14 and that's it. The bar is on the right and has 4 barrels actually sat on the bar with their backs to you and the beer clip on the back. They're each set on one of those clever contraptions that raises the barrel as it empties. No handpumps here, it's gravity only. All four were from Marble when I visited last Friday, but this may change. I had a pint of the Summer Marble which was excellent. They have a large range of Belgian bottles as well which are a little more pricey than Fringe, but not too bad. They also sell food which is marked up on a blackboard. There are more veggie options than carnivore. Don't come in here and expect to get a glass of wine or a spirit, it's beer only. It is very quirky and I like it, although it wouldn't be to everyone's taste.

This is another Marble Brewery bar, which had two casks on the bar counter seemingly dispensing a ginger flavoured ale, and and another one called “Pint”, both by gravity. There were another two casks on the counter not in use, and presumably settling. They advertised the same cheese/bread/biscuit offer as the Mable Arch.
The Pint was an excellent ale. I do recall that at one point my companion glanced down at his glass and observed that his ale had inexplicably disappeared and thus was forced to repair to the bar for replenishment. This is a common phenomenon experienced by drinkers imbibing excellent ale.
This is another pub/bar in the modern style. There was one long wooden table, accompanied by some normal chairs, and a few sofas as a contrast. I was told that this place only had a beer license. As modern bars go, this was a pretty decent one.
