Micropub. Black paved floor, blue walls, bench seating, high tables, modern art, hipster filament light bulbs and pretty dark. No bar counter, just a guy shuffling about awkwardly in front of a door. Five ales on; I tried the Hattie Brown's Moonlight (very good) and Totally Brewed Papa Jangle's Voodoo Stout (fine). There’s also a selection of proper ciders and bottled beers. Pint and pie offer for 6 quid. It’s a decent place but lacks a bit of intrinsic charm and cosiness for me to make it a true stand-out. 7.5

The Silverback is a micropub that only opened in the summer of 2016. Inside it's a typical rectangular room with the cold room at the rear and just high tables, chairs and benches along the walls.
One of the beers had gone when I arrived so there were just three available Lincoln Green Marion & Gin And Beer It and Bartram's Coal Porter. I went for the Gin And Beer It (£3.60 after CAMRA discount) which was excellent. A small but complimentary amount of snacks was provided which was a nice touch.
My only disappointment with it was that they had sold out of Naga Chilli Pork Scratchings but apart from that it was excellent.

A former massage and spa shop, this new micro is a single room bar with fixed wooden benches and tables, and a flag floor. No WIFI, no electronic distractions and no bar counter. Various barrels are stored under the tables. Snacks are locally sourced, and the staff are friendly. Four ciders available today: Muddy Scamp, Penny Pot, Thirsty Cross and Biddenden. Three novelty gins and four English wines were on, plus of course the ales: Angery Birds and Raven from Magpie, Yeovil's Hop125, Brewshack's 5 a Day IPA and Crazy Like a Fox from Totally Brewed. An excellent addition to Bournemouth's ale scene.
