ORIGINAL REVIEW October 2012

A micro pub that has sprung up in a former shop,it is small but perfectly formed.There are tables either side of the entrance with picture windows giving the interior a lot of natural light.There is a bar at the rear with a raised corridor leading to the lavs.There may not be enough room to swing a cat,but you should swing the bat at their ale selection from three handpumps,on my trip two from RedWillow and a very decent Quantum Pale Ale (£3).The collection of pump clips shows that Mallinson,Magic Rock and Marble beers have featured here which is a ringing endorsement , it's in the 2013 GBG and has won local CAMRA awards.There is also an extensive list of 50 bottled beers and lager together with three taps for kegged draught lager from Vedett,Liefman's and Flensburger.
There is a short well thought out menu of cold food,cheese and breads with a selection of pies with mash,peas and gravy if you want something hot.There is a quiz on Sundays and on successive Mondays conversational evenings in German,French and Italian,a Book Club and on any fifth Monday in the month a "Stitch and Bitch".
The clientele varied from hip craft beer fans,young ladies tippling the strong ale to CAMRA types,but on my Friday evening trip the younger element were in the majority,well behaved and enjoying the lively atmosphere.
This is an outstanding example of what can be achieved in a micro pub,and the young owners deserve serious credit.This would now be my first port of call when in Macc and although it wouldn't appeal to everyone,I thought it was a real gem.

UPDATE

Very quiet on a Thursday night,this micro has lost it's GBG listing and I can see why.Although the three handpumps offer some interesting ale from leading small scale brewers the condition of my Revolutions Marquee US IPA left a lot to be desired,too warm ,listless and with a faint vinegar tang despite being clearish.NBSS 2 .Maybe insufficient throughput ,maybe lack of care but the boat seems to have sailed from this former star of Macc.Large downgrade.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Treacle Tap

Stereotypical micro-pub, surprisingly (or worryingly) quiet later on a Saturday evening. Eight wooden tables of various types, with tea lights. Three real ales available on handpump: Rooster's Buckeye, Marble Bitter (£3.80) and Muesli from Manchester Brewing.
