Ale central

An awesome spot for an Ale fan, a huge variety of ales on offer. The hadouken was sublime, even if it was on the strong side at 7.8%😁

An excellent range of beers. It was very pleasant near the bar with more quieter seating upstairs. Food was available. There was a huge choice of great tasting beers.

This place has a lot of beer on draft and oftentimes has sum really rare stuff. (They had Evil Twin, Even More Jesus this last visit.) The staff is friendly and are happy to let you taste as many beers as needed, so that they can pour you a pint that you fully enjoy. This is a "must visit" for... More

With 37 beers on tap to choose from - what is there to complain about! The only challenge is choosing. Relaxed atmosphere and unusual mirrored ceiling add to the charm of this place. Can't wait to try the rest of the places in this small chain.

Leather Lane, a corner pub serving a large selection of craft beers. Proper old pub minus smoke and sweat. Knowledgeable bar staff. Love it!! (Lager drinkers need not apply)

If your a fan of craft beer in a relaxed atmosphere then this gem of a pub is for you. One of the largest selection of beers on tap I've seen. This pub is a pub that does not judge how you look but wanted you to enjoy good craft beer.

Just the 37 beers on draught!!! So many choices. Luckily, the staff were friendly and let me 'try before I buy'. We visited mid-afternoon, not too busy. Probably best trying to avoid peak times as not much seating area.

We stopped in here after walking through Leather Lane, and ended up spending a couple hours drinking and visiting with the locals. Staff was great and the beer selection was super.
