Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Open Arms

Plainly decorated micro-pub, but lighter within the front part due to whitewashed walls and windows on two sides. There is also another small raised area beside the compact counter / stillage room, and another tiny area with a single tall table further back, and a mixture of semi-modern furniture in all sections. With up to six real ales on gravity, I found the 'house' (Brew Studio) Pale Ale (£3.30), Harvey's and a couple of Brumaison beers on offer.

This is an ultra-basic micro situated between the station and the town. There's no hand pumps, and not even a cool room either. Up to 6 casks are racked up behind the bar, on which there's a sole lager font for Curious Brew.

It serves its purpose as a micropub, but the appeal seems limited (and wasn't helped on a cold wet evening by a sticky door either).
