Visited on 19 July and enjoyed Tapped Oat Stout and Allendale Anvil IPA. Went baack later in the week and enjoyed Northern Monkey Sheephouse and Redwillow Feckless. Good place for conversation with locals lucky enough to have this microbar.

One small room with four real ales and two ciders clearly marked on the wall, together with what is to come next. No bar - you give your order to the landlord who brings you out your ale. Opens out to the platform at the back. Decent place.

Step off the train and enter this micro through the blue station door into a small ale drinkers den, run by an eccentric beer aficionado, who will put you out if you misbehave or even a mention of the word lager and you will get a red card. Mrs Ale was in his good books straight away as she donated a few quid to the his favourite donkey charity. We also met the original owner of Dr Phil's micropub in Middlesbrough, Dr Phil, playing cards with his pals and he requested that we visit his daughter's new micropub up the road, Hops and Cheese. Beer wise we went for the Kelham Island Pale Rider and Windswept Aurora.
