Will Larter left this review about The Infant Hercules

One of a cluster of micropubs and bars in this area on the edge of the central shopping streets. Very busy at the time of my visit, with about 50% of the customers people that I know well from the Bricklayers Arms in Luton. The owners were struggling to keep up, with two barrels having apparently been drunk dry in the space of a few minutes. I had the Higsons Porter, which was in very good condition. If I find myself in Middlesbrough on a non-football day, I'd be happy to come back to this one.

Real Ale Ray left this review about The Infant Hercules

This micropub was the original site for the award winning tea shop next door, until it came up for let and one of the employees of the tea shop took it over and open it as a micro. This micro is run by a husband and wife team, where the chat and welcome is very good. Four handpumps serving three ales and one cider. We went for the Oakham Endless Summer, which was served far too cold. Titanic Plum Porter and Rudgate Jorvik were the other two choices.

Aqualung . left this review about The Infant Hercules

This is one of five micropubs in a very small area. It broke the guidelines by having a silent TV with subtitles and a 90s Britpop soundtrack playing. It's been more than well described below so the three beers available were Tyne Bank Northern Porter, Three Brothers Red Revolution and Springhead Roaring Meg. I went for the Roaring Meg (£2.80 including discount) which was in good nick and excellent value. This was probably my favourite of the five. It's also the only one with CAMRA discount.
