This is the more "crafty" of the two Hinckley micropubs. It's set in a modern unit that is part of a cinema complex near the bus station. The interior has that modern unfinished look with aircon ducts, a metal clad ceiling and aluminium lamp shades. The beer is stored in a chilled cabinet with sliding glass doors. There was a low volume music track playing and a fair number in on my Saturday afternoon visit.
Five beers were available something called Baton Breakfast Black IPA, Farmageddon Oatmeal IPA, Arbor Sean Of The Red, Wishbone Abyss Stout and Abbeydale Cold Conscience. I went for the Oatmeal IPA (£4.40 inc discount) and Cold Conscience (£3.20 inc discount). Both tasted fine but neither were clear and there was no warning that they were unfined beers.
I thought this was a decent micropub despite the hazy beer and is quite a contrast to the other Hinckley one.

A family run Micropub and on our visit we met the father and son, who were very welcoming and good fun. The father, Tim, on his arrival brought in a box of hot homemade curry flavoured sausage rolls, made by his own fair hands and have to say they were delicious. He's also known to turn up with a pan of curry at weekends.
This is an industrial style micro, with the bar facing you as you enter and beers served from glass sliding doors behind the bar.
Five ales and various ciders and a well stocked selection of gins were available on our visit. So we went for the Blue Bee Tamagochi and Bakers Dozen Stormtrooper. They also credit themselves on not repeating any beers twice. Good atmosphere, friendly and chatty locals.
