Both our beers were really tasty in this tiny little place. We had halves and I really liked the glasses they were served in- like brandy glass shapes, personally I much prefer these to the regular straight-sided glasses for halves. There wasn't that much of...More

Visited here for the 1st time last week. Appreciate the 'real ale', 'craft beer' concept but to me it was just a small pub in an unremarkable location with average products and indifferent service. And we were told quite abruptly that they were closing early...More

We stopped in here whilst we were in Barnsley, and thought it was an excellent little beer house. Plenty of ales on draft, and various boxed ciders, with friendly staff. Would happily visit again when in Barnsley

Hidden away up the arcade, this compact pub delivers the goods every time. A great range of beers on draught, and also in cans or bottles, with knowledgeable and friendly staff to help you find what you'll like. Seating is limited downstairs, but there's more...More

This is a very nice little pub hidden away in Barnsley, The beer is good real ale just up my street. It's a small place not much seating and it soon gets full. The Bar prices are what you would expect for real ale.

Visited on a Friday night. Really welcoming and friendly. As expected, the beers were excellent. It was a flying visit and I had to leave after a single pint. But I took a 4-pint carry-out with me. The closest to this place is the kind...More

Great and varied selection of craft beers at a reasonable price. Small venue upstairs and down. Spotless bathroom - just like being at home! Great friendly service - deserves your support.

I have visited quite a few micro pubs on the south coast of England and I was pleased as punch when one opened in Barnsley. I like the atmosphere of a micro pub, likeminded people enjoying their drinks in a relaxing environment where friendly chat...More
