Will Larter left this review about Northern Monkey

A recent shop conversion, with quite a wide frontage giving plent of light to the interior. The bar is at the back, made of large chunks of recycled timber. There's plenty more of that material, with floor, benches and tables all featuring original or repurposed wood. Walls are mostly bare brick. A nice touch is the way the bench backs have been made by attaching cushions to the walls with belts on hooks.

On the bar are four hand pumps, with one unused, one with Tinothy Taylor Landlord and two from local Loxley Brewery. I went for their Damflask, a very nice bitter with a dry finish, in very goos condition. There was some fairly loud background music, with The Jam's Town Called Malice greeting me as I walked in, which was good. I hesitated over whether or not this disqualifies it from being classed as a micropub, along with all the keg beers and the gins, but I reckon on the whole it probably is.
