Real Ale Ray left this review about Orb

Six handpumps, all in operation on our Sunday afternoon visit. The line up was Three Brothers Thai IPA, which was infused with lemongrass, Brass Castle Misfit, Brew York Tonkoko Milk Stout, Brew York Superunknown, Durham Magnus and Bad Seed Judgement Call. We tried a few of the beers and have to say the Brew York Tonkoko was one of the best milk stouts I've ever tasted, made with Tonka beans.
The main features in here was the two copper lamps over the bar, constructed from two immersion heaters, and a varied collection of micropub and beer related T shirts, across the ceiling. This micropub also specialises in whiskies.

Visited this microbar on 20 July and enjoyed Saints Row Window Shopper and First Brew Thirst porn from this busy friendly pub.

Micro on two floor levels; the business bit at the front is in a small ex-shop space, behind is a tall stool laden area with two shelves and a cask as table plus a couple of low seating areas. Staff not exactly on the ball, probably not used to the licensed trade in any form apart from the guy I supposed to be the landlord who struggled manfully. It has six pulls and a nice selection of Scotch single malts as well. Unusually for a micro it has conventional toilets.
