Alan Winfield left this review about Needle & Pin

The Needle & Pin is a Micro pub that i walked past without knowing it was a pub.
Once inside there is a small oblong shaped room which runs to the rear,the bar is to the rear and up two steps,there is a stone floor,the seating is bench seating on the left side and tall tables and chairs on the right side,there is also a room upstairs.
There were four real ales on the bar,i had a drink of Stancill Barnsley Bitter,which was a very nice drink,the other real ales were Slightly Foxed Urban Fox,Milk Street Stout and Stardust PK3.
Pretty similar to most Micro Pubs i have been in and almost empty on my Saturday dinner visit.

Good micropub which, unsurprisingly, was quite full. The barman was attentive and I would return to this place.

I did wonder if there was any connection between the name of this pub and the Searchers and the previous review gives me the answer. I'm old enough to remember the Mersey Beat group and a track called Needles and Pins was their second number one single. If the owner is the older of the two blokes who were there when I arrived then he is way too young to know about the Searchers!
The previous review also describes the place well. I didn't venture upstairs but downstairs just seemed to have three tables alongside the bench on the wall.
The three hand pumps had Thornbridge Lord Marples & McConnells Vanilla Stout and Scarborough Sealord. I went for the Mc Connells which was excellent. Although it was priced on the blackboard at £3.60 I was charged £3.40 so assume they thought I was a CAMRA member (is it that obvious?).
I thought this was a good micropub and with the Swan in the Rushes only a few doors away makes this side of town well worth a look.
