If you are not aware of this new type of drinking establishment please visit www.micropubassociation.co.uk for the full story, but the basics are:

  • conversion of a closed shop or similar premises

  • small in size: 30 - 40 persons only

  • limited service: usually real ale/cider only

  • limited trading hours

  • reasonable prices

  • no lager/keg products

  • no piped music

  • no television

  • no hot food

  • no electronic machines

So its mainly "just good ale and conversation".

Our promise is to stay true to the original traditional micropub model throughout, resisting the temptation to extend hours, extend the property, and add products. We will showcase all beer styles and not be another 'pale and citrusy' only pub like so many others, we will try to always have a dark ale on dispense.
