I nearly missed this place because it looks like a shop and is next door to a traditional pub. Fell brewery have done a good job here and I really like the place. A good crowd of regulars and friendly bar staff.

Two evening visits either side of a very acceptable pizza in the nearby Italian. The pub was busy, with a quite a few pints disappearing upstairs where the footie was on. 13 cask and keg beers on the blackboard from £3 to £10 a pint - they will never believe this down South. Very enthusiastic manager/landlord who gave me a taster of the tenner ale from Denmark.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Pomona Island - APA5.30ExcellentA very fine APA
To Øl - Black Malts And Body Salts9.90ExcellentJust a taster of this double, black, IPA from Denmark. Yummy - but at £10 a pint it should be very good.
Fell - Session IPA4.50GoodOn keg - didnít notice that when I ordered and clearly a dead but fizzy beer. Great flavour though.
Fell - Simcoe Ekuanot 4.20GoodUnfiltered, fruity.

Much quieter than usual. Started to fill up as we left for some award winning chish and fips at the close by chippy.

Quite busy, no-one in the upstairs room though. Too far to the bar? Also had a Meantime Raspberry Wheat Beer from the bottle range.
