A very interesting brewery tap in the middle of a tiny village. It was actually quite difficult to find. The garden at the rear was perfect to sit out and enjoy the sun last week. The ale was on good from although I was suprised there was nothing other than Church End available. Interesting to see the brewery and a good afternoon enjoyed by all.

Church End have made a very good job of adding a brewery tap to their plant. The location is a bit strange but the ales were good and the outside seating area was very plesant although it started raining whilst we were there. 4 Church End ales were on offer all of which were on good form. Not really very pub like but well worth a trip out at a weekend providing your not the one driving!!

A very interesting brewery tap although a little soulless. The range of beers from Church End was impressive but there was room for some guest ales. I have been on a number of occasions and it especially good when sat outside in the garden area. A bit off the beaten track but worth a trip.

As Snarling Mallard states, this place is more akin to a modern community club than a pub and is not too atmospheric. However with 8 of Church End's beers available and with the brewery visible through a large window at the back, it's certainly worth the detour. By the way, the alleyway described opens up into a car park where you could probably fit around 50 coaches! The 2 barmaids were still waiting for the rush when we arrived. The 8 ales on during our visit were Grave Digger's Ale, Poachers Pocket, Mill on the Floss, Fallen Angel, RIP, Rusty Dudley, Pews Porter & Cuthberts. A cider (not sure which) from Ben Crossmans was also available. Although this wasn't in the best of condition. Various local CAMRA awards over the years are celebrated on the walls. I was particularly enthralled in the conversation of 5 elderly gents in the one corner who seemed to be remarkably reminiscent of those from Last of the Summer Wine. Childhood stories of rationing and Meccano sets were very much the order of the day, whilst the price of beer has apparently rocketed! This place is certainly one for beer lovers to try. But it's not a place for real pub lovers. Incidentally our favourite pub of the day was our previous call at the Horse & Jockey in Bentley. I'll request for it to be added on BITE. But that was far more of an authentic pub experience.

Relatively remote down a side alley on what one would expect to find the social club of an amateur football club. Once inside the similarities end. Maybe a bit too modern and 'tidy' for the purists but if you like decent beer then this place is a shrine you need to visit. Home to the Church End Brewery and there is a multitude of their wares on offer here. I only tried the Goats Milk and The Taming of the Brew but both were excellent and well worth this wayward detour. Lisitng it under Nuneaton is a bit of a misnomer as it is a fair way out from there (over half an hour on the 41 bus to be precise). Atherstone is the closest station though involves a walk of around 2 miles along a pretty dangerous lane so a cab would be advisable if coming from there.
