I much preferred this micro compared to next door, as it had more going for it, such as lots of collectables and artefacts dotted around the walls. There was a couple of old pushbikes from the 70's on show above the toilet, nice to see an old Raleigh Chopper again. The owner here was welcoming and chatty and looked like a bit of a rocker. This guy also had his dog with him named Sam, who had recently taken a liking to real ale in his bowl. Six handpumps in here, serving five ales and one cider. We went for the Tring Side Pocket for a Toad and Quantock Brewery Sunraker, £3.10 a pint.

This is possibly the most pubby of the three micropubs. It's a rectangular room with mostly high furniture, a not too loud soundtrack playing, a wooden floor and bric-a-brac around the walls.
The bar at the far end has six hand pumps which had a cider, Dancing Duck Back Sack and Quack, Dorking Brewery DB1, Three Castles Heritage, North Yorkshire Yorkshire Porter and Old Spot Tongue Tangler. I went for the Dancing Duck one (£3.00) which was in excellent nick. I only marginally preferred the Tapster's Promise although there was a better but more mainstream beer choice here.
