Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Bursley Ale House

Really a mini-pub rather than a micro one in terms of size, but the ethos is definitely of the former ilk. You approach the fine old building, formerly a wine bar, through a tidy front beer garden and find a small room with the counter directly ahead and the casks in a cool-store cabinet to the right. With only a few bar-stools in this part, the main seating area is in a modernised room on the left-hand side. Five real ales and two ciders in a range of styles on the bank of seven handpumps, from which I opted for the Burton Bridge Damson Porter (£3.20).

A well supported community pub, serving five ales and two ciders from handpump. As this was originally a town house and not a purpose built pub, there is no cellar here. So all their beers and ciders are found on stillage, situated in a chiller cabinet on the right hand side of the bar. I decided to go for the Oakham Bishops Farewell, but unfortunately it had just finished. No problem there as one of the locals, poured us an Oakham JHB straight from the cask.
We found this pub to be very welcoming and it wasn't long until we were chatting away with everyone. Another nice touch was the landlady brought round some snacks in bowls for everyone and the local Bombay mix was hot and spicy. The pub also hosts a pie and peas night on Tuesday nights, which are made locally and will only set you back a couple of quid.

Although this place is billed as a micropub and is on the Association list it does break two of the guidelines with the TV screens and the fact they sell Guinness and their 13 lager. The screens were showing that 80s music channel on my visit but BT Sport is advertised outside. At least it doesn't seem to have Karaoke nights like one of the Redcar micropubs!
Ignoring that it's been more than well described below but I would add that the toilets here are upstairs. I was the first one in at midday but a few people started drifting in.
The seven hand pumps had two ciders, Town House Bramling Cross, Leatherbritches Ashbourne IPA, Oakham Inferno, Clouded Minds Hazel Nutter and Bradfield Farmer's Stout. I went for the Ashbourne IPA (£3.20) which was excellent.
It's a nice enough place but the TV screens mean it loses a point from me.
