Visited last Thursday. Five hand pulls at the bar - I had the Space Cowboy Hop Kettle (£1.80/half) and Tiny Rebel Pango (£1.90/half) which were both decent. The other pumps had a real cider, a bitter and a blonde. It's a modern feeling bar which also has keg options as well as the cask (though not the likes of Carling etc), spirits behind the bar, and a selection of cans both on a shelf and in the fridge. £1 off is advertised for takeaway cans.

There is a big hand drawn looking map of the Droylsden area on the wall, and pump clips all over the place so they obviously get through a bit of beer. Mixed seating inside - a couple of booths, window shelves with bar stools, and standard tables and chairs. A decent place and one I would be happy to go back to.

A larger than average micropub converted from two shops rather than the normal one. There's a couple of booths to the right in the windows along with a few tables and chairs. There are more tables outside in good weather, but on this occasion it was freezing. There's a bit of a big think going on in the decoration. Four fairly pedestrian localish beers on the handpumps plus a real cider. The two pints I had were in decent nick though. It's an OK bar, it's brilliant for Droylsden, but nothing special in the big scheme of things.
