This multiple room micro pub is the sister venue of the Weavers micro pub near Kidderminster station, set in a canalside Georgian building that apparently dates back to 1804. Unlike its sister pub, this place is able to create much more of a traditional pub feel thanks to the various room layout maintained throughout the building. You enter to a front lounge which is carpeted on both the floor and the lower section of the wall, beneath a dado rail – a nod to the pub’s name which in turn honours Kidderminster’s carpet-making industry. The upper part of the walls has dated floral wallpaper and there is a nice fireplace to the right with an impressive dark wood mantle displaying an old clock and various brass items. Pew and low stool seating fills the room out nicely and decor includes pictures of vintage cars, a collection of old banknotes, numerous pump clips, printed lists of locally licensed premises and a section of partly weaved carpet with some of the trade’s tools on top. Steps take you down into the main bar area – a tile floor space with the servery along the rear wall and a notable lack of seating options, forcing the locals to fill the space by standing in front of the bar. The bar has a dark wood counter, mirrored bar back and hop lined canopy covered in more pump clips and there are blackboards opposite listing the beer and cider options. There was another lounge-style room to the front, accessed from the bar, but I only got a quick look in here – I think I spotted a dartboard and some comfy seating. Stairs lead up to the toilets and it really does feel like you’re in someone’s house as you make your way up.
There was a good range of ale available and the blackboard was very helpful, as the customers around the bar made it very tricky to see the pump clips. I noted Bewdley Worcestershire Way and Worcestershire Sway, Bathams Best Bitter, Fixed Wheel Stout, Hobsons Town Crier and Three Tuns XXX plus around eight cider/perry options on the long row of hand pumps. A cheery landlord served up a near perfect pint of the Bathams for £3.20 whilst I was accosted by an extremely excitable puppy that one of the locals was trying to get accustomed to being around groups of people.
I’ve always felt that traditional the constraints of micro pubs prevent them from being genuinely outstanding venues, but some of the newer breed that have eschewed the usual shop conversion model to instead make use of interesting old buildings have, in my opinion, taken the concept to the next level. This is such a place, offering all the benefits of the micro pub concept in a venue that feels very much like a traditional pub. I loved this place, could easily have spent the whole night here and thought it was the best of the eleven pubs I visited during my weekend in Kidderminster.

Off to Kiddy to check out the Good Beer Guide entries for 2017. This was #1.

A converted house that keeps its homely appeal with a front room, a side parlour and a bar at the bottom. Really is like walking into a relatives home.

Except they have a well stocked bar. At least 8 real ales. I went three tuns - and it was excellent.

Good beer pub and a decent start.

A double fronted pub just over the canal from Tescos, (there's a footpath from their car park to the canal). Inside there are two main rooms at the front with a servery/bar down a step at the back, all pretty much in a front room style. The back tap room is standing only and on the counter are fourteen pumps, six with ales and eight with ciders and perrys. Three of the ale pumps sport Hobsons handles while the others are of a design I've spotted a lot in ex-Tetleys pubs in Leeds, they've all got sparklers "as God intended". This room is quarry tiled and decorated with a range of very old (1970s) beer mats, I spotted a few erstwhile favourites and some grim beers among them. To the side a door leads out to a pleasant canal side garden. A super and friendly pub.
