Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Old Bay Alehouse

Decent micro-pub with a 'L'-shaped seating area featuring lounge seating at the front and a few small tall tables along the side and at the back. With no pumps on the compact counter, the four real ales were being served direct from the casks racked up in a cool-room at the back. The choice was Ilkley Ruby Jane, Long Man Long Blonde, Thornbridge Lumford and Arbor Mosaic Pale (£3.20). Six ciders are also available.

Formerly a general stores and post office, which was a family run business for three generations. The new owners have kept the pubs front façade along with the signage as close as possible to look like the original stores. This is a one roomed micro, with a small bar area situated on the right, with a small cold room positioned behind the bar. I found the interior to be smartly finished along with lots of well positioned and comfortable seating areas. The customers along with the owners were all friendly and welcoming.
Four ales to choose from, clearly chalked up behind the bar. We went for the Cellar Head Pilot, which was my beer of the week. Their other beers were Wantsum Imperial, Gadds Cloud Surfer and Westerham British Bulldog.
