Quinno _ left this review about The Micro Moose

Micropub run by Canadians (as the name implies). There’s more light and cosiness than the Silverback, plus a more overtly friendly and welcoming atmosphere. Inevitable Canadian theme with flag and framed posters from the motherland. Upright piano spotted – does it work? Bench seating and a sofa (gasp!). Five ales on, my Red Rock Devon Storm was excellent and St Ives Boilers near perfect. Also proper ciders and bottles. Tried a slice of the local pie, which went down well. I liked it here a lot and would make the effort to do it again specially. 8.5

E TA left this review about The Micro Moose

Almost an archetypal micro, the single room bar has basic, custom-made wooden tables and benches, a new wooden floor and a small counter at one end of the room. No WiFi, four handpumps on the counter and a selection if ciders were on offer. The barmaid was Canadian, very pleasant and helpful, while the clientele were particularly civilised for this part of Bournemouth. Ales on draft were Gales (ie Fullers) Spring Sprinter, Downton Black 'Ops, Bath Ales's Barnsey and Tavy's Ideal Pale Ale. Ciders were 2 from Orchard Pig, Earnie Boy's Clear Scrumpy, Old Mount Berry, and Black Rat Premium. Decent bar snacks were available, including nachos, pork scratchings fresh from a local butcher and scotch eggs. Coffee and tea were also available. An excellent watering hole, definitely worth a visit.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Micro Moose

Mostly conventional micro-pub, albeit with an unusually light interior and a limited amount of Canadian-themed decor. Convivial atmosphere on a Sunday lunchtime. Four handpumps on the compact counter, but two of the real ales were being served direct from casks behind the bar. Although the beers weren't very local, there was an interesting choice from which I went for the St Ives Boilers (£3.50) with those from Upham, Goddard's and Big Rock also noted.
