A large one room micro, with a seating area out front on our visit. The bar was positioned along the back wall and had a herring bone patterned block floor front and an oak counter top. The flooring was lino and walls were painted in cream with a deep pink coloured painted woodwork. There was also a decorative wall mounted dovecote displayed on the right of entrance. A decent display of pumpclips was beginning to amount on the left hand side of the bar area. A choice of five cask ales on our visit, so we went for the North Cotswold Shagweaver and the Stamps Brewery Submarina, both of which were in good shape. The owner or manageress was friendly and chatty, but had a noisy habit of throwing the empty bottles into the bottle bin, which was right beside her, considering the bar area is so small. My second gripe was Alfred the Bulldog (see photo) who we were sat near to, was trumping and boy was there a whiff, so we had to move quickly.

This is quite a large mircopub occupying the ground floor of a nice looking building on Uttoxeter's market place. The bar is to the rear, behind a couple of pillars, with the space between occupied by a group of regulars at the time of my visit. The space before the pillars is larger than in an average micro, so that the effect overall is much more like a regular pub, with people occupying their own tables and separated by plenty of space from others, so there's perhaps less fraternisation and conversation than might be in a more confined area. Of course, the background music could have something to do with that too; pretty awful it was as well.

The beer choice was good and in good condition too. In a town seemingly dominated by Bass, it's good to see some other beers, and especially from Banks & Taylor, of which I had a half of their Old Bat 6%. I also had a half of Purple Moose Resolution 4.1% - four other beers were available (see photos). A quick look around told me that most of the late afternoon drinkers were on lager, though the crowd around the bar included one whose tipple was a bottle of Brewdog Punk IPA. Good grief.
