This is a very curious pub indeed, and all the better for it. Excellent beer, snacks on the bar (I visited on a Sunday afternoon) and some distinctly interesting and friendly locals. It is rather like a micro-pub, although it isn't one. I love it!

As per Martyn the convivial host and landlord; the pub opened in November 2005 making this the first Micro Pub. This is an absolute gem with a fantastic range of beer's plus some very friendly fellow drinkers. Not to be missed.

The very first Micropub in the world. The very best beer served in the world - as far as my experience can offer of course!

This is where the micropub revolution began - and now with over 200 nationwide, it's good to come here and see where it started. It's a quirky and lively place, great for locals and for people coming from further away. The ale is always spot...More
