Will Larter left this review about The Shrub Club

A cafe bar occupying part of the semi-derelict Torr Vale Mill. It is easily reached by walking from either of the two New Mills railway stations: just under five minutes from Central (or from the bus stop in the town) and a bit longer than 10 from Newtown, so would make a good refreshment stop if going by train from Sheffield to Buxton and back. The interior is smartly done up, and bright in the morning sunshine, and there is a beer terrace with bench tables and parasols (or are they umbrellas?) with a spectacular view down to the Millennium Walkway. The bar counter has a large Budvar font centrally placed and a group of five keg taps, mostly serving beers from local Torrs Brewery. Beers are listed on a smallish blackboard to the right of the bar. There's one hand pump but it's slightly hidden and obviously disused. (There's also a Whiskey Cask cider which I assume is in a polypin, as I didn't see it on the bar counter.)

It was a bit early in the day for a beer - the cafe is open at 10am but has pub-like closing times advertised - so I took my coffee out to take in the view and enjoy some sunshine before walking to Newtown for my train. A pity there's no real ale here, but given the position of the bar, it's quite likely that there wouldn't be sufficient turnover to make it viable. I wouldn't mind coming back to try the local beers another time, though. (Their Facebook page shows them currently closed on Tuesdays, but this may be because of staff shortages so could change.)
