They do some really interesting and tasty beers here, though watch out as some of them pack a real punch. The menu is relatively small but nevertheless quite varied. We had pork belly, chilli, burger, vegetarian curry. All were good without being great.

Bentspoke appears in searches to have the highest rating and it is well deserved. Quality beer and cider served quickly by knowledgeable staff. I didn't sample the food but everyone having it looked happy.

We stopped here as it had outdoor seating and the dog water bowl showed our best mate was welcome. The beers were mainly exceptional, Frenzy was the highlight, the Gose was a like a durian, smelt shocking but tasted amazing. The IPA's were good also,...More
