We arrived here around 5pm on Saturday and the place was jammed. We managed to get a space on the left hand side of the bar, which was handy for perusing the beer board which was right next to us. The two cask options were TT Landlord, which seems to be a regular as it was on in Rob Hunter's review in April. The other choice was Rudgate Ruby Mild, which was good and reasonably priced. There was also a choice of eight keg beers and a few people purchasing bottles of wine, served in stainless steel coolers. A good choice of bottled and canned beers was displayed along shelving running along the right hand wall. This place was ok for a one off visit, but I wouldn't go out of my way to make a return visit, plus I didn't like the type of customers - all too pretentious.

As has been noted, this is a micro pub, and is small. In that respect it appears to be a victim of its own success, as on Saturday evening it was absolutely rammed, with barely any standing room. A couple of people left which meant my friend and I were able to pounce on a couple of seats on the other half of someone's table. But even getting to those seats was a struggle as the tables are crammed so close to each other. Obviously there is only so much you can do in the space you have, but I think they need bigger premises! There is a fascinating selection of bottles and cans available to purchase to take away, but at £4 for the Shindigger one I was looking at the risk of buying it at the start of my crawl and something happening to it during the course of the evening was too great for me to contemplate the purchase.

In fairness, service was fairly efficient given how busy the place was, and at the bar were two cask hand pulls and (I think) 8 keg options. A prominent chalk board lists everything available so you get time to make your mind up before being served. The two cask options were Tim Taylor Landlord (which I didn't really think fitted in with the venue's other offerings) and Sonoma by Track. This is an Untappd verified venue and the menu wasn't quite up to date. We went for one of the keg options, West Coast Pale Ale by Shindigger, at £4.00 a pint / £2.00 a half, and was rather pleasant. Plenty of different styles and strengths to choose from on keg.

Nobody wants to see an empty pub but I found this a bit uncomfortably busy and if I were to go back I would probably try to make sure it was during a quieter period. Definitely one to seek out if you're doing a crawl in the area though.

This is a micropub, so, of course, it's tiny. 4 tables inside and another 2 outside. 2 handpumps and 8 keg lines on the wooden bar and 2 real ciders, there's also lots of reclaimed wood around the place. There's a downstairs area with more seating apparently, but I didn't visit. A really good atmosphere in the bar during my Friday, late afternoon visit. It was easy to get chatting to people at the bar. There's also a 10% CAMRA discount on all purchases.
