Will Larter left this review about Smiffy's Craft Ale & Wine Bar

Not really a micropub, with plenty of keg beers and wine as well as five hand pumps, but the owner runs it himself and takes the early part of the week off, so there are similarities as well as differences. I turned up at a quiet time and the owner (Mr Smith?) had time for a chat. He's had years of experience in the technical side of the brewing and pub industry, but this is the first time he's actually run a pub, I gathered. It's been open just over a year and doing very well. (Only opens Thursday to Sunday but "pays the mortgage".) I had a couple of halves, of which the Navigation beer was not terribly impressive but the Spitfire was spot on (see photo for other options at the time of my visit; the Facebook page seems to be kept well up to date too). Well worth a look in when in this part of the world, but note that only one train an hour (in each direction) stops here, and the buses are pretty slow.
