Will Larter left this review about Brews of the World

This is a bottle shop with a keg-only bar counter on the right hand wall. The owner was welcoming and friendly but the beers all seemed very samey to me: pale and hoppy (and, naturally, cold and gassy too) with the only dark beer a chocolate stout with coconut and raspberry. Most of them quite strong too, with prices to match. (See photo of beer blackboard.) I was on the point of walking out without bothering with a drink, but decided to overcome my prejudices to the extent of a third of the 4.5% pale from Verdant with the name There Will Be No Intervals. It was very cold and didn't do anything for me, apart from making me £2 poorer. I was told that the long term plan is to have cask beers too, but this depends on developing enough trade to be confident of selling them before they go off.

A bottle shop (with an oddly limited bottled range though there’s loads of old Bass) with an on-licence and a small amount of seating, dominated by a long main table which at least cultivates convivial drinking, all housed in a spartan rectangular high-ceilinged room which smells of new and is a bit cold. No ale here but 10 craft taps are available, all UK bar one from the US (Left Hand Brewing 25th Anniversary) alongside a variety of chilled bottles and cans. Classic FM was the choice of background music, unusual but highbrow. Friendly owner. Quite idiosyncratic here which I liked, though it won’t be to everyone’s taste.
