Early evening visit, my first to this Micropub. Very friendly and inclusive in all ways albeit the pub is quite difficult to find initially. Started to fill up for a pub quiz with some rather demanding questions. I was shown the various sparklers and creamers that may be added (or not) to the handpumps depending on each brewer's recommendation. Nice touch is to have dual taps on ale casks allowing for either handpump or gravity dispense. 14 ciders / perries on offer and clearly popular.
Bristol Beer Factory - Milk Stout4.50ExcellentI had sampled this with creamer on handpump and from gravity and plumped for my pint on gravity and it was superb
Brew York - Maris the Otter3.90Good
Stag - Red Imperial4.50GoodA Kent outfit from Woodchurch that I had not heard of before. Has supplied here with several beers to date. The pub was crowing that this was its 100th cask to go on sale since it opened
