A shop conversion with the bar counter on the right upon entering. Two cask ales are listed on the board beside the bar - both from Marble and both very expensive: £5.60 and £4.75 per pint. There was no sign of any hand pumps or other method of dispense, nor anything to confirm that these beers were available upstairs, and being put off by both the prices and the brewery I made my selection from among the keg fonts on the bar. There are two lots of four, and I went for Magic Rock Inhaler 4.5%. Of course, this was cold, fizzy and expensive - what did I expect? To all my critics on Camra's Discourse forum, I am trying to be open minded but all it's doing is making me poorer while I drink beers that are not really to my taste, and cold and fizzy to boot. I hope you're happy now.

I agree with Mr Bundy in that this place has changed a fair bit since its refurb a few years ago. It used to be a single room with one long table and a bit of extra seating here and there. Now the space seems to have been better used. The cask ales are now on the upstairs bar, though if I remember correctly when first refurbished cask was absent for a brief period while the upstairs bar was being completed. At my lunchtime visit today there were two cask options available and a further 8 on keg. Of the keg, 5 were Marble (of these 2 were collabs) and the remaining being from Magic Rock, Neon Raptor and Perry's Cider.

I had the Lagonda IPA on cask which was very pleasant (the other available was American Amber, also by Marble). I didn't have to go upstairs to get it - I was able to order from the downstairs bar and have it brought down to me - though presumably this was because it was quiet so can't guarantee you would get the same service on a Friday or Saturday night. Next I decided to try one of the keg options, Uppe Hela Natten by Marble (but think was a collaboration with Takk Coffee House), and this was delicious. I'm sure there used to be three cask ales available and it's a shame that this appears to have been decreased to two, but I would say the keg options do compensate for that especially with most of them being from Marble.

Oh dear. Its all gone wrong. This place has been refurbed and its still Marble beers but its all T-bar pumps. You may like the new look but its not for me.
