“Beers, beers and more beers!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 February 2014

My first visit here a year or so ago made me want to come back here. It was pretty empty on my first visit as we went there early. This time around on a Saturday evening it was very busy however there was no struggle to get to the bar and order. If you are expecting to play it safe and have Stella or Fosters etc then don't come here, you won't find and you will unlikely know most of the beers on offer. The clientele were mainly 30+ which suited me just fine as it gave the pub a more sophisticated feel. As expected, there a lot of beers and ales on tap, at least 35 different beers + all the bottled beer in the fridges. You really need to start here early and try different beers, the staff are very knowledgeable in what beers they have and will always recommend something based on your requirements. I can't wait for my next visit!

“Beer and more Beer!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 February 2014

A truly excellent selection of beer and a bunch of staff who seem to really care what you drink. Wonderfully helpful. Busy as well, so it seems I'm probably not the only person who goes back again and again...

“Incredibly Popular beer Mecca!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 January 2014

Get in early and get a seat and take a ride through the best of english ales and all sorts of beer from around the world. The staff have an indepth knowledge of all sorts of beers and will happily recommend you a beer if you have an overload of choice (which can easily happen here)
