Just across the road from the main entrance to the excellent Priory Park, this is a modern craft beer bar in a good-sized shop converted unit. The room gets a lot of natural light thanks to the typically large shop windows to the front and this combines well with a light colour scheme and economical furnishing to create a bright and spacious feel. The room has modern laminate flooring with walls painted in bright shades, broken up here and there by some exposed brickwork. The servery runs down the right-hand wall and has a smart counter with a brass footrail, a modern bar back and a large TV screen to one side which lists the full draught range. A couple of low tables and stools have been positioned in the front windows, making you feel like a bit of a shop-dummy if you find yourself sat at one of these tables, but plenty of small tables with modern versions of school-style chairs fill the space through the middle and to the left of the room. A hop plant growing in a vase at the end of the bar and a lot of framed brewery-themed photos down the left-hand wall add a bit of weight to the bar’s beer credentials and a good soundtrack of mostly 60’s hits played quietly in the background.
The draught options listed on the TV screen next to the bar extended to just the one cask ale – Westerham Summer Perle – supplemented by five keg options from Westerham, Electric Bear, Brouwerij Boon, Gipsy Hill and Brighton Bier. If none of that takes your fancy, a three-page disposable beer menu lists all the bottle and cans options you could ever hope for, although prices for some of these were pretty hefty. The staff here were very friendly and ensured customers followed all the necessary Covid protocol before allowing them entry.
This is very much a modern bar with no traditional pub features, but it still managed to feel like a comfortable place to get stuck into some interesting beer. The bar seems to attract a mixed clientele, making for a decent atmosphere which, coupled with the friendly service, made my visit an enjoyable one.

This is a classy new cask & craft keg bar operated by an Oxted-based bottle shop. It's a single room with the draft beer displayed on a screen and a fridge full of cans and bottles behind the bar.

There's 3 handpumps, with 2 in operation on my visit (offering Five Points Best & Wild Beer MMXX), as well as 9 taps of leading edge craft from the likes of Buxton, Burnt Mill and Bristol Beer Factory; these taps also included Silly Moo cider, Good Things Pilsener and Westerham lager.

Background music wasn't intrusive and the bartender was helpful and knowledgeable about the beers on offer. I'd certainly return if I found myself in town again.
