Unexpectedly interesting... looked like a regular back street pub but its quite the beer experience.

Central bar has many hand pulls and a board explaining the wares. Around the otherside is a full on brewery kit.

Garden looked nice - which might be handy, as they allow all tables to be reserved.

Beavertown Neck Oil sampled for the first, and probably last time. What's all the fuss?

No clips on hand pumps, all beers listed on large board and i glad to say with prices clearly marked, they need to be as they are quite steep. A half decent pub for all that.

Hadn't heard about this pub until yesterday. It's a typical example of the new breed of craft beer pubs. You enter to find a row of handpulls with no clips. I initially assumed that there were no beers on. But a large blackboard indicated a good selection of both keg and cask ales. The cask selection was Ilkley Dinner Ale, Caveman Neanderthal, Hobsons Town Crier, Black Iris Citra & Round Tower Lupuline Black. A half decent pub in an area that now has plenty of real ale establishments.

Darbs is about right.

Lots of positives but something just not right for me.

Well worth a visit though and a good choice of beer.

They've got some things right here, including the beer. It's a bit more cool than The Craft, more spacious than the the Euston Tap, but the prices - ouch!
