Unfortunately, the WBE is to close its doors for the last time on Sunday 05.08.18. Apparently, it has been struggling financially for a while and administrators have now been called in. The venue has attracted some interest from other parties, but there's nothing definite to report. A real shame.

This shop conversion is well described below. It was empty when I turned up early on a Saturday afternoon.
It's an outlet for the Revolutions brewery and the six hand pumps had three of their beers Swoon, Grip and Chocolate Fudge Milk Stout. The other three were Hilltop Golden Ale, Slater's Premium and Milestone Crusade. I went for the Hilltop Golden which despite the barman pulling some through was warm, cloudy and pretty poor.
When there's a heatwave on why don't pubs turn down the cellar temperature to the minimum?
I may have been unlucky with this one but I've got to mark it on the basis of the very poor pint provided. It's GBG 2018 listed.

A shop conversion in the town centre which neatly fits the micropub description.
Despite the sparseness of the interior, hardly a surprise given the building's original purpose, the atmosphere here was very good on our Saturday evening visit. It was busy and friendly with plenty of chat and badinage for which some credit must go to the amiable bar staff.
I noted a bowl of dog treats on the bar so, presumably, our canine friends are also made to feel welcome.
Beers on were: Revolutions Candidate, Turning Point Rising Tide, Eyes Lecker Weisse, Shiny 4 Wood and Great Heck Patrick. An eclectic selection and the Patrick slipped down easily as all the other choices seemed to.
Drop in if you're on a crawl and exploring it's likely to be well worthwhile.
