Set in a small industrial unit just outside the town centre, this is a small brewery taproom set across two compact rooms. You enter into the main bar area, which is a simple bare boarded space with tables and chairs to the left under plain painted walls, the servery to the rear right and a couple of large, upturned barrels in the centre for people to stand around. The bar has a rough and ready timber fronted counter which is in keeping with the slightly shabby feel of this old industrial premises, whilst the bar back is dominated by a large stilage unit, from which all the beers are poured. The room has been decorated with arty photos of the moon and planets, a few CAMRA certificates and various blackboards listing available beers as well as those that should be coming soon. Down a couple of steps to the left of the bar, you enter a rear room with chairs and padded kegs serving a few extra tables in a rather more echoey space with plain painted walls, bits of brewing equipment (albeit none seemingly in use) and some beer fridges. Moon and star fairy lights can be found around much of the pub, adding to the generally muted lighting throughout.
There were no Moonface beers on stilage, with options instead comprising Frome USA Pale, Little Brewing Little Rambler and Milestone Deliverance, plus a couple of craft keg options. The USA Pale was in decent enough nick but the general reception was a little frosty and I very much felt like an outsider intruding on someone else’s territory.
Putting aside the unwelcoming vibe, this seems like a decent addition to the Loughborough pub scene and offers enough to merit an inclusion on any pub crawl around town. They seem to offer beer that you might not find elsewhere in town and know how to look after it well enough, so I’d say it’s worth taking a punt.

One of the ugliest pubs in an ugly area, at least inside is ok, typical tap room real ales, though not selling their own, seems this goes to festivals and other houses. Nice feel inside

A basic brewery tap in an old industrial unit with stereotypical chilly temperature and damp smells. An immediate black mark was that none of their beers were on, “we need to shift these first” said the friendly Irish Woodstock behind the bar; I say that your planning is non-existent, sir. Five on stillage and no complaints with my Charnwood Hubble Bubble (NBSS 4) which left me with a far better impression than I expected. GBG’22 listed and with good reason. 6.5
