Decent micropub with unusual and often disturbing d├ęcor with photos of Victorian freaks and diseased organs along with very weird modern art. OK choice of ales but no dark or strong ones - I have come to expect micropubs to cover all bases with minimum choice of one best bitter, one light hoppy, one dark and one strong.
Notice they charge 25p for tasters.

A smashing micropub. Well served with good ales and a great lively bunch of locals.

Small shop now micropub. Layout is all one single line of table against the wall (a bit like your average tube train layout as in all longitudinal no transverse).

Ale was drinkable (there was a choice of 4 on). it was okay but one of those places you stop for a pint then move on (as in nothing to keep you there)

As a post-script, if you should need a haircut, and it should also happen to be a Monday, then the barman would be more-than-willing to swirl a black cape around your neck, as he guided you into a chair before a mirror, and then plugged in his clippers to administer a highly professional job to your locks. You could enjoy a pint during the process too, and also savour being a talking-point, among the customers to whom this might be something out-of-the-ordinary.

Winston Churchill suffered from extreme fits of melancholy, and he named his particular demon the Black Dog. This compact establishment would probably have remedied his distress, had it been available to him at the time however. It's not really that far from Chartwell either.

Well done to all concerned, a rare ten-out-of-ten from me.
