A fairly decent micropub. Its not, however, a place for those of you that abide by the strict micropub rules that you've made up as there is background music AND a tv. For the less petty then this is quite good. The bar is next to a deli counter and there are 5 handpumps plus 2 keg fonts. Beers from Abbeydale, Prospect, Doghouse and Bank Top available today. Dodgy wallpaper as noted. I liked it.

This is pretty much a micropub with a deli. One small room that looks very like a cafe. "Interesting" wallpaper with one side covered in fake bricks and another with jokey animal themes, almost like a kids bedroom. Several chunky wooden tables and smart chairs to sit on gives it a higher class than usual look. Some cafe style metal tables and chairs on the pavement outside for those occasional sunny days. 5 handpumps with beers from 5 different breweries on the bar and my two halves were both in excellent condition. I really liked this one.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Doc's Symposium

Attractive modern café / bar, with the light furniture and decor very much giving the appearance of the former. However, once past the salads, cakes and nuts in the display cabinet, you find a bank of five handpumps offering the 'house' DHB, York Guzzler, Prospect Silver Talley, Martland Hill D-Day Dodger and Irlam Works Breadcrumbs (£2.80). There is also a fount on the counter with two craft keg taps and another five on the side wall dispensing Avalon 'cydra' and a few standard keg beers. Not one for the traditionalists, perhaps, but worth seeking out.
