Will Larter left this review about Hole In The Wall

A large micropub, if such a thing can exist. There's some pavement seating and then quite a long room with the bar towards the right. Blackboards list the keg beers, the gins and the canned and bottled beers, but there's no list of cask beers. I saw three hand pumps on the bar, all from Derby brewery, and went for the Dashingly Dark, which was ok but a bit too in-your-face for my taste. I then noticed three more hand pumps further along the bar (all with Derby brewery beers on, hiding behind some clutter. I asked the owner, who had not greeted me and failed to make eye contact when I spoke to him, why this was, and he muttered something about not having much room. Now maybe I've misunderstood, but I thought that gin, keg beer and cans and bottles kept forever (or as near as makes no odds), but cask beer goes off after a few days - wouldn't it make sense to promote the perishable stuff on one of the blackboards, rather than hiding it away behind notices for pork pies and scotch eggs? I thought of asking him how much cask beer he has to throw away on average, but if he wasn't interested in me, why should I be interested in his pub?
