About the Pub

Small, intimate cellar bar specialising in bottled beer from all around the world, owned and operated by a local CAMRA member. Situated directly opposite the Bridge Street Ale House, the pub comprises of three separate areas: the two drinking areas are to the left and right, while the centre of the building is taken up by the bar and shelf upon shelf of bottled beers, ciders, perries and wines, over 300 of which were stocked on the opening day alone. Two of the draught ales are served by the Key Keg dispense method, while the hand-pump may well serve a local ale. No food is served, but customers are welcome to bring their own sandwiches etc, to consume inside. Note the shrine to the landlord's previous life as a computer technician. AWARDS: CAMRA Potteries Pub of the Month July 2018. Pub of the Year 2018 (Merit).
