Bucking Fastard left this review about The Barrel Drop

Hunts Yard is a narrow ,steep lane which is easy to miss.Barrel Drop is towards the top end and has a pleasing curved frontage.The bar area is down some steps and has a 6 seater table.At the lane level there is a small area with two tables and a library effect wallpaper at the end,plus the loos.To the right of the bar is a side room.It's all quite dainty but doesn't have the vibe of a micropub,the music is well chosen but quite loud.I suspect the target audience is student/younger drinker and doing a circuit from the copious nearby bars and clubs.
The pub is owned by Magpie Brewery and on my trip all three ales were theirs,my Magpie Five for Silver Pale was uninspiring.
There were also 4 ciders,one from Magpie while 5 kegged beer had one from Magpie and some other more interesting options.

I'm not that keen on Magpie beers and this does seem to be styled as their tap rather than offering a selections of real ales common in many micros.There are better real ale options in town.On this form not sure why it made it into the 2021 GBG.

Checked opening times before we left home. Said it was open until 10 on a Sunday. Arrived at 9:05 and it was closed. To be fair the door sign said until 9, but their social media was wrong which isn't much use.

On the face of it this looked more like a craft bar than a micropub but the only real distraction was a loud music track playing. It's a split level room with the bar lower down. It was quiet on my early Wednesday evening visit.
Five cask ales are available normally but on my visit one hand pump was unused and one had a cider leaving Colchester AKA Pale & Number One and Great Heck Citra. I went for the Great Heck Citra (£3.50) followed by the keg Magpie Wanderlust Stout (£4.90). Both were in good nick.
I thought this was OK but not the best micropub I've been to.
