This pub is described as a 'micro pub' but it is more spacious than other micro pubs that I have been in. There's a snug and a library inside in addition to the bar area. The snug was nice and warm on a cold night thanks to a log burning stove. Very tasty selection of cask ales at a variety of strengths and styles and from a variety of breweries. There is a good selection of wine and spirits. Very pleased that there the keg offering included lager as my wife does not drink ale. Ambience and service excellent. I will return!

Awesome spot for a quality drink with a great range of beer, gin and more. Classic chalkboard available telling you all about the beers so you can make the best choice. Really well done inside with plenty of character in the decor etc. We loved it and will be going back!

Love it! Real character to the place. Took me back to my senior school years. Lots of talking points. Original idea. Great choice of gins. Great gin glasses. I didn’t partake in the real ales.
Quite possibly my new local when we move to the area in a few weeks.
But sssh I want to keep it a secret.

Went here at 10.10 Easter Thursday, bank holiday weekend. Barman wasn’t at all friendly. His first words were “your lucky to have just made last orders we close at 10.15 tonight!” We ordered a couple of G&Ts drank them quickly and went elsewhere. While sitting drinking them we spoke to a couple of regulars who’d just turned up, they informed us that it doesn’t shut at 10.15 as the barman told us. They were annoyed that he was shutting early as well. They drank up quickly and left. Wouldn’t waste my time here. The staff are rude and very unwelcoming. Shame as it’s a really funky little place and the drinks were really nice!!

Been here many times with work.

Nice atmosphere and friendly people. They have some incredible beers on if you hit it at the right time. Due to location it sadly has no beer garden and lacks seating. However that’s not a negative and there’s not a lot they can do about it.

Will continue to return for a few swift ones👍

Great place for me to go for a quiet drink with lovely beer, friendly staff and my kids love the range of lemonades. Wide range of ales lager and gin. Ideal for pre dinner drinks.

Very lucky to have this place on our doorstep. Constantly changing selection of interesting beers from local and other craft breweries plus good range of gins and wines for non-beer drinkers. No food as such but lots of nuts and other snacks to choose from if needed..!
Friendly staff and customers but can get crowded at peak times. Pavement terrace is a bonus in fine weather.
Dogs and their well-behaved owners welcome..!

Great pub, brilliant atmosphere, lovely beers and gins to try. Staff very knowledgeable and friendly. Quizzes, music, vinyl music nights. What’s not to like. If you’ve not been try it, you’re missing out!!

It is tiny, but the Real Ale Classroom has character plus a fine range of beers and ciders. The décor is wood mand the seating is relatively rudimentary but that's not what people go for. They are there for the excellent beers straight from the barrel.
