About the Pub

Pie & Ale reopened after a short 2 month closure in May 2018. Originally opened in May 2013 on the ground floor of a recently built office block known as 'The Hive'. The name tells you pretty much what you need to know, it sells six real ales and a selection of pies. The beers are predominantly from local brewers but there is also a cheaper house ale called 'Yipee pie ale' brewed by Wells and Young. There is a selection of over 20 bottled beers from various parts of the globe. The decor is in a modern style with an island bar with tables in front and behind. There is a 'snug' looking to the front as well as seating outside the bar in what is effectively a corridor through the middle of the building. On a mezzanine above and behind the bar are a series of comfortable booths. The beer hall to the left is used for functions and showing sports matches on a large screen. There is 25% off cask ale on Tuesdays. During the week it may close early if not busy.
