Decided to give the place another try when in Buxton on Saturday evening. Still has four hand pulls at the bar but this time offering Thornbridge Jaipur, Wincle Waller, Beartown LBS and Brewsmith Pale - a much improved selection compared to my previous visit. The Beartown LBS was £3.50 a pint.

The place was reasonably busy on Saturday at around 8:30pm and some of the customers were dining but drinkers were just as welcome. It had a nice relaxed atmosphere.

Four hand pulls at the bar. At the time of my visit these were dispensing neck Lifter (Jennings), Saddle Tank (Marstons), Jaipur (Thornbridge) and Sir Philip (Wincle). A half of the Sir Philip set me back £1.80 or so, and was an OK if unremarkable bitter.

The place seems to be quite food focussed, there are food menus on the table and a specials board. The menu is of the premium gastro fancy end of the market rather than basic pub grub.

The place is smart and service was friendly. There was a real fire going in the front half of the building. The second half has the bar, which is initially hidden from view when entering. The toilets are down a corridor past this area, by this point you begin to wonder if the building ever ends or just goes on forever; it is definitely bigger than it looks from the outside!

I can't really fault the place and to have four real ales on in somewhere that appears to be food orientated isn't bad. But for me I am not sure there is much to rush back, but was glad to have been and tried it.

This is a shop or cafe conversion, and in fact there was previously a cafe bar or pub called Beltane on the same site. The bar is in an extension at the back, facing an area with a glass roof and a side wall lined with fire logs (there is a real fire in the front room). It was quite busy at the time of my early Friday evening visit, with couples, groups of friends and even the occasional family with young children enjoying the relaxing ambience. The bar had four hand pumps with two local ales and two from the Marstons stable. Most if not all of the keg offerings were also Marstons, so I suspect a helping hand from that operation was behind the reopening of this place. Service was friendly and the beer in good condition (it's in the 2018 Good Beer Guide).
