Tucked away in the back streets but well worth seeking out. 5 real ales and “craft keg”.

A back street gem this one and well worth a visit. Unfortunately the pub is tied to Punch Taverns, but nevertheless it does feel and run like a well nurtured freehouse. The pub is c.1847 and was previously a butchers shop and also at one stage it was a cider house, with the rear garden full of apple trees. Six ales on handpump on our visit, Skinners Betty Stogs, two from Wye Valley HPA & Butty Bach, two from Purity UBU and Bunny Hop, and Adnams Ghost Ship. I went for the Ghost Ship, which was in tip top condition. We stayed a little longer than anticipated, as we were having such a good chat with the barman and a couple of locals at the bar.

A very friendly back street boozer,well worth seeking out.The interior is small with a bench running below the front window,a bar along the left side,a few tables and chairs with a large mirror on the way to a very decent beer garden,partially covered.The flatscreen was airing The Open,and regulars gathered around the bar for some banter.There is a small kitchen to the side,but no sign of food offered,it appears a wet led pub.There are some interesting wooden carved heads and masks dotted about the interior and a CTFC shirt hanging on one of these carvings shows the pub's allegiance.I imaging on matchdays the pub will be busy.
The 6 handpumps were drawing London Pride,Box Steam Tunnel Vision,Backyard Hoard,Milton Icarus,Wye Valley Butty Bach ,Wickwar Bob with a replacement in Mordue Nothumbrian Blonde.Due to a downpour our crawl rested here for three ales and all we sampled were in good nick.It's not in the GBG but maybe should be. The jokey sign outside points the way to The Jolly Brewmaster ,a GBG regular,but it's a complicated route while to the right is marked as "Here be Dragons" or in other words no pubs for miles !
Definitely worth a revisit,the chatty guv'nor also gave some very good recommendations on other real ale pubs worth a crawl visit, it's an old school local with some very decent ale.
