Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Bird & Barrel

Proper micro-pub with just five small, round tables with pew-type benches along the side walls and a smattering of plain chairs and stools. Not a lot of features to note, but conversation is the order of the day here anyway. The compact counter in one corner has enough space for three handpumps, dispensing two from owners Bexley Brewery - Hills & Holes and Redhouse - and the Eureka & Callista 'Joined at the Hop' from Iron Pier (£3.60, and very good too). Also has three craft keg offerings from taps on the side of the cool room and a selection of bottled beers.

This is a proper micropub with no distractions and owned by Bexley Brewery. It consists of a small square room with low seating. There's a small bar counter at the back left with three hand pumps and three keg options on a wall. They also do a few speciality spirits.
The three beers on my visit were Bexley Hills & Hoppy & Golden Acre and a joint venture Mild with Clarkshaw brewery. I went for the Mild which was OK but didn't retain any condition.
This is quite a small place and I would return but wonder if there's a question mark over the beer quality.
