A corner pub best know for it's Soil Association accreditation and it's commitment to organic produce.The exterior map shows all their food suppliers.The interior has been totally stripped out,and has ranks of bench seating rather like a refectory.The bar is along the far wall from the apex entrance and has 4 handpumps offering on my trip St Peters Organic Ale,Purity UBU,ELB Brakeman and Three Sods BoHo Bitter(too warm,which is a problem I've had in here before so maybe there a cellar cooling issue.)
It's lively and principally a dining venue although there is a drinking shelf near the entrance if you dont want to take up a position on a long bench .However coming in here just to drink is fine,expect neighbours to be eating.I got into a chance conversation with some friendly locals,which led to more pub information and research.However there are better pubs nearby for real ale.

Decent corner pub with craft ales. The three mothers with babies put me off a bit, mind you.

12th July 2011.

This is Britain's first and only organically certified pub. As such, all beverages and [gastro] food are organic. The pub proclaims that it is environmentally sustainable.

Ale is pulled by Vestal virgins and lavatorial waste is recycled to power the Wifi server via a wind turbine mounted on the bar; organically reared animals eagerly queue up to be spatchcocked under the High Altar of this pub's salamander (okay, I made this bit up). Seriously though, the concept is appealing and the pub is generally a very nice place - lots of bare wood lines a large and mainly open-plan venue, though lighting is dim which means it's in keeping with the neighbouring Lord Clyde and George Orwell (what is it with this area and dim lighting?); copies of the pub's cook book are on sale at the bar.

I would be very happy to come here again and bring my environmentally like-minded friends, publicly educated or not.

----------------------

A return visit and unsurprisingly, little has changed, though it does seem a little more food orientated.

Beers up: St. Peter's Organic Ale, Stroud Brewery's Tom Long, Uprising Brewery's West Coast IPA and Purity's Saddle Black at £4.25 which was both a little lifeless and too warm.

I think this place still sits between pub (not boozer) and restaurant; I'd certainly come here on a date or special occasion if in the area.
