Alex says

This is a tiny hybrid beer store and bar with a great selection of beers, including some uncommon ones. There is a small corkage fee on the more expensive bottles and cans if you want to drink them there, which is reasonable. Be early if wishing to sit at the bar as there are only four bar stools.

Jezza says

On our first visit in April 2017 we popped in for a quick one, got comfortable, and ended up spending an excellent couple of hours here. Service was really friendly and we had some fantastic beers. There are only a few seats as it's a tiny space, but we really enjoyed our time here and are happy to highly recommend it as a 'top pick'.
