“By far the best bottle shop I have visited and I have unfortunately visited a few. The selection there recently was outstanding and the chap behind the jump was helpful and friendly – he also wore a great Smiths T-shirt. If you haven’t been, go.” – John F.

“As someone who frequents many craft beer stores, can say I was impressed with this one. Good range of the brewers you’d expect, as well as some more leftfield ones, which is good to see. Being able to drink instore is also a bonus, although, on this visit, I did not. The man working there was friendly and knowledgeable about his stock. Would recommend.” – Dominic L.

“A brilliant and friendly shop. Fantastic real ale selection and the wines and sherry’s would take half a lifetime to get through. The wine tasting machine is a great way to try before you buy. And the click and collect are keeping the panic attacks at bay during lock-down.” – Martin J.
