Larger than your normal micropub,but with all the positives of no children,dog friendly,no muzak,great ale and a jovial atmosphere.The interior is well lit through the large plate glass windows and the seating is a mixture of leather sofas and more traditional pub furniture.Beyond the main bar there is a scruffy lobby,but further back still an area called the parlour with more seating.Around the bar there is room for vertical drinking near an upturned tun,and there was lots of banter amongst the regulars.The bench seating outside is in a good sun trap in fine weather.
On my trip the 6 stillages were serving Market Harborough Brewery Dry Stout and Whirlpool No. 2,White Park Cranfield Best,Nene Valley Hopstash,Magpie Thieving Rogue and Blue Monkey Bonobo in absolute top condition and only £1.80 the half.
There are 4 leading craft keg offerings,a long list of bottled beers and a selection of wines.
My visit was a brief half on the way to the station,but next time I'm in town this is going to get a serious look in.The interior is a bit rough and ready but the ale selection make this a must visit for any serious real ale fan.The hours are quite pub like but it's closed all day Tuesday and doesnt open until 6pm on Monday and Wednesday.Hipsters please note,cash only !

Another new micropub which opened on December 5th 2014 in an old furniture shop.
The Beerhouse is tucked into a small square just outside the town centre. It's very easy to miss but that would be a serious error.
The plain, single story building with large windows hints strongly at it's former use.
I visited early on a Sunday lunchtime and was greeted by the friendly pub dog, a delightful brindle Staffie. The owners and staff were just finishing setting up and were checking that each of the beers on was in good nick. A good sign. Their welcome was warm and friendly and they were very happy to chat about the beers on, how the Beerhouse came about and how it was doing.
The interior is probably as you'd expect given the building, it's fairly sparse with industrial lighting but there are comfy tables and chairs and a selection of board games available. The bar has 12 barrels racked up to the right containing those beers on and those settling. The friendly atmosphere generated by both staff and locals, large windows letting in plenty of light and excellent beer make this a nice place to be despite its minimalism.
The owners used to frequent a quality Everards boozer close by but found the constant diet of Tiger and Old Original slightly restrictive which prompted them to create the Beerhouse. The original intention was to offer around 6, mainly local, beers but things have gone well hence the 12 barrels by the bar.
There's a blackboard by the bar which lists the beers available and those 'coming soon', or settling, along with a brief description, strength and price.Those available on my visit were: Housebeer 3.6% £2.80, Hart Cloudy Opal 5.5% £3.50, Hart No 9 4.3% £3.00, Whistling Kite Jai-Ho 3.8% £2.80, Oldershaw Caskade 4.2% £3.00, Tres Bien Ponytail 3.4% £2.80, Red Brewery 5.4% £3.20 and Flipside Kopek Stout 4.5% £3.00. Those settling were: Nobby's Best 3.7% £2.80, Oldershaw's Mowbrai's Mash 3.7% £2.80, Hart No 3 4.7% £3.00 and Celt Chieftan 4.1% £3.00. That's an excellent selection of predominantly local beers and the Jai-Ho and Cloudy Opal were very good indeed. Sadly, they were all I had time for.
The Beerhouse is a good example of a micropub and is an incredibly welcome addition to a town which has long struggled on the real ale front. It is already the best in Market Harborough and certainly the first, and probably only, place I'd head to if in town.
