17 Sep 2016 (Philip Pirrip)
Evening until 10.30 pm close. Special visit as heard it was so small and indeed it is. Great conversation on beers and breweries and our CVs with the proprietor and his wife who run the brewery between them. Plans to go to the nearby Young's pub The Foley were quickly extinguished. Expensive at £4 pp but this IS Surrey, a county usually best avoided beer-wise.
Surrey Hills - Ranmore Ale3.80ExcellentIn good nick, served on gravity
Brightwater - All Citra4.30GoodOddly tasted nowt like other single hop Citra beers which was disconcerting
Brightwater - Little Nipper3.30AcceptableLost head quickly. In fact were only 4 or 5 left in cask and eventually ran out

About the Platform 3

Summary of Beer Scores



The pub is found in Claygate, Surrey, KT10 0PB.

Former taxi office and coal merchant's office in the forecourt of Claygate railway station. Vies to be the smallest pub in Great Britain with room for one seated and 2 standees by the bar. All other seating is outside with a portable heated gazebo if required. Inside cask ales are sold by handpump and gravity dispense from a 6, individual jacket-cooled, cask stillage. Effectively the brewery tap for the nearly Brightwater Brewery but sells other local ales too. Use the station toilets. Licensing restrictions insist on the use of plastic glasses only.

We have visited this pub once, seen 3 different beers and tried them all.
