Micropub with extremely limited opening times. Closed Monday until Thursday, it does not open until 4pm on a Friday and Saturday and 3pm on a Sunday, with early closing times too.

We arrived too early on our Saturday visit and ended up walking away after trying the door and finding it locked. Another couple also tried to enter and the owner arrived to let them in. Seeing this, we returned. But he was clearly not going to let us in as well. So, we headed elsewhere. Not the best of welcomes unless you're local.

We did return later to find the place very busy. There is a seating area near the window, with the bar to the back of the room. A corridor leads down to toilets and another room with seating off to the left-hand side. This contained various board games and Rubik's Cubes.

4 real ales were on - Drone Valley Bessemer, Falstaff Clarkson, Leatherbritches Scoundrel & Bradfield Farmer's Irish Dexter.

Ciders were Lilley's Strawberry Cider, Pear & Raspberry Cider, Pineapple Cider, Cherries & Berries, Mango Cider, Rhubarb Cider, Lemon & Lime Cider, Cheeky Pig, Peach Cider, Apples & Pears, Woo Woo Cider, Pina Colada Cider & Raspberry Mojito Cider, Weston's Old Rosie & Abrahall's Thundering Molly.

In addition to all of this, there is an extremely impressive gin selection, the likes of which I have not seen before.

Despite the poor initial welcome (or lack of it) and the very limited opening hours, which presumably can't be helped, I really liked this small place. It had plenty of character, a real friendly atmosphere, decent service (once you get through the door) and a wide drinks choice to suite most palates.

Only a short walk from the Barrel and Bean and an even shorter walk back to the railway station. This was formerly part of the antique shop next door and the micro has acquired some further seating space at the back of the shop next door. The interior of this micro is full of antique artefacts such as standing lamps, ornaments, picture frames and a chesterfield settee. The bar can be found in the far right hand corner and hosted four handpumps, a choice of six ciders and one hundred types of gin. If you bring your dog along there was beer for dogs sold in bottles on the bar at £3 each. One of the customers I was chatting to at the bar brought his dog back later and bought it a beer, which was served in a dog bowl obviously. and the dog lapped it up, it was a warm day though.
Beer wise we went for the Totally Brewed Meland Gold and Dancing Duck 22.
