Ian Mapp left this review about The Little Ale House

Micro pub thats been in the Good Beer Guide for the last four years.

Very shoppy looking micro pub - with a long bench (under which they store the barrels) and one leather sofa looking out over the street.

Friendly staff manning a racking system offering 5-6 gravity fed barrels. They explained in detail all the beers. I was half thinking off going for a bottle but not that many on offer and unlike others of the ilk, no menu to peruse.

The Woodcote Oatmeal Stout was a local brew - tasted delicious and only suffered from a lack of life from the gravity feed.

I'd come back.

This is a genuine micropub concentrating on ales and cider. It's a rectangular shop conversion with the bar at the back. There is a bench down the left side with the usual high tables and chairs, some of the tables seem to have been constructed from old sherry casks. I was the only one in on my Tuesday afternoon visit.
They don't have a cold room here but rely on cooling jackets.
Beers noted were Holden's Golden Glow, Oakham Citra, Wye Valley HPA, Urban Huntsman Session Amber and two from Malvern Hills that I couldn't read. I went for the Urban Huntsman which seemed to be in good nick but was a rather unexciting beer. The landlord who also tried it seemed to think so as well!
I thought this was OK as a micropub but may be better at a time other than that when most of these places are closed.

One of the most uninspiring micro pubs I have visited. The interior was scruffy and looked dirty in places. There was a woman sitting over on the left as we entered, who reluctantly sloped off her seat with a sigh to go behind the bar to serve us. Once at the counter, we were hoping to see some locally sourced beers. Not a hope there! as the choice was two from Castle Rock and a Prescott Track Record.
