An unusual micro which is more cider bar than alehouse. Ten ciders, mostly from Kent, and a single ale on draft. There is also a hairdressing saloon at the back, a new meaning for 'hair of the dog'. A single small bar at the front, basic furniture and a bit of an 'Age of Aquarius' theme to the décor. The landlord is extremely welcoming, and there is a friendly atmosphere pervading. The ciders I had were all in superb condition. Very much worth a visit if you like cider, and I would certainly include in a crawl.

This is unusual as it is essentially a cider micropub that does a token real ale. It's a long narrow split level room with the serving area at the rear. There was a fairly loud rock soundtrack playing which is unusual for a micropub.
The token beer was Mad Cat Pow Wow Pale but I went for one of the eight ciders Wild Owl Dry (£3.50) which was very enjoyable. There are also a variety of bottles on sale.
This one doesn't provide the usual micropub experience but I thought it well worth a visit.
