user reviews of the Little Ale House, Bromsgrove

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Our final stop of the day in Worcestershire was the Little Ale House, a busy micropub in Bromsgrove town centre. A blackboard displays all of the ales and ciders. Although, be careful not to choose any of the keg options, unless that is your thing. There is a house beer called Half Cut, which is from Woodcote Manor. Other ales were Hobson's Mandarin, Shiny Rocky & Three Tuns Solstice. Ciders were Thistly Cross Whisky Cask, Lilley's Bee Sting Perry, Strawberry Cider, Mango Cider & Lemon & Lime Cider, Farmer Jim's Farmyard Fruits, Copper Top & Rhubarb Bob, Thatcher's Traditional & Gwynt y Ddraig Black Dragon. We were greeted by the local dog, who apparently breaks wind and creates a foul smell when excited. I say apparently, but it was more than apparent after we gave it a fuss. Nice place. But, then I rarely find a bad micropub.

Micro pub thats been in the Good Beer Guide for the last four years.

Very shoppy looking micro pub - with a long bench (under which they store the barrels) and one leather sofa looking out over the street.

Friendly staff manning a racking system offering 5-6 gravity fed barrels. They explained in detail all the beers. I was half thinking off going for a bottle but not that many on offer and unlike others of the ilk, no menu to peruse.

The Woodcote Oatmeal Stout was a local brew - tasted delicious and only suffered from a lack of life from the gravity feed.

I'd come back.

Welcome addition for to the town. Always a great selection of real ales and ciders and the place looks a bit more homely on each visit.

Agree with the above that a chalk board listing the ales available would be good, as while its nice to ask at the bar at busy times this isn't really possible. Hoping it continues and that the council allow it to latten its closing times a little.

Not from the area, but the Little Ale House is the first (and last) stop for us when visiting rellies in Bromsgrove. Quirkily presented bar with very friendly locals and staff alike. Although we've only been a handful of times, the beer selection has been good and, more importantly, well-kept. Ok, perhaps it is a tad on the small side, particularly on a busy Saturday evening, which is usually when we're in town; but give me cosy to a large, draughty, soulless bar anytime.
What more could a beer-lover want?!

A bold venture is the Little Ale House. Basically a pop up pub in a former hair salon. It has a very peculiar high level bench running along one side with high table and stools.
A simple bar with a combination of fridges and a multiple barrel stillage rack.On that they have a combination of barrels either ready for drinking or still settling. Bar staff appear very knowledgeable on what's on offer. I cant help thinking a more visible chalk board somewhere would aid selection.
It's great to see a small independent surviving amongst the chains on the high street. I feel a better location would help, particularly given the number of empty outlets in the town.
