Al Bundy left this review about Hard Times & Misery

UPDATE: Now called Dickens And King. Name change only.

Now open. Rearranged inside with the bar now along the right hand wall. 3 handpulls now on the bar with an additional 3 gravity beers due to be added. Still tiny and now much slimmer and, quite possibly, less room than before. Upstairs part unchanged.

The easiest way to find this micro is to look for the café next door, once you enter Maryland St. This micro was opened in 2016 and has been used as various outlets down the years. Originally it was a violin repair shop, tanning shop and a hairdressers. The interior consists of a small ground floor bar and first floor seating along with one toilet. The ground floor room had bare red brick walls and parquet floor. A small bar area is found along the back wall, with a small pine counter. The back bar had dark blue painted walls, with some pine shelving displaying various types of Gin. Four ales on stillage along the back wall, served from pins, to increase the turn over and beer choice. Beer choices on my visit were, Rock the Boat Dragons Teeth, Rock the Boat Fab Four IPA, Neptune Mosiac Pale Ale. I went for the Neptune, priced at £3.60 a pint.

not much to add to the other reviews except it is as good as they say. I was the only one in so I just retired to the cosy upstairs room and relaxed to the trendy indie music playing. well worth a visit, just don't take half an hour trying to find it like me. Google maps may help.
