Very pleasantly surprised to find this Craft Beer focussed bar open just across the road from the station, serving up to 13 keg taps with a varied line up of styles and ABVs largely from regional and national breweries such as Verdant and SALT, 2 cask ale hand pumps with local real ales from South Devon, plus a cider bar and a fridge of cans. They also have a good menu of pub snacks and mains. I had the Korean Fried Chicken, which for a bar of its type was way above expectations - it looked and tasted superb. Food is not served all days of the week, so ensure you check with the bar beforehand. Bar staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. I was given a hefty unsolicited discount for a can despite drinking it in (usually cans are discounted 10% for take out). Prices were, for someone from the South East, really good value - £4.20 for a pint of cask real ale, keg prices on average £5.60-£6 except for the higher ABV/rarer style beers which were understandably quite a bit higher. All available in thirds, halves and full pints. Current menu can be seen on Untappd. I understand this venue is fairly new, and whilst it wasn’t packed out on a Saturday night, there was a steady flow of people and it felt very atmospheric, comfortable and relaxed. Best of luck to the management and owners with this venture: There aren’t too many bars like this in the area, or even the region, so I can see this getting very busy during the Summer.

Good selection of keg ales, but could do more on cask for real ale drinkers. But its still a nice place.

Finally a bar that really sells Real Ale etc. Good Choice. Looks small from the outside but it’s a Tardis inside. Great welcome. Plenty of seating. Definitely will be returning. UPDATE Now serves food on selected days.

Excellent selection of craft ales. Great knowledgeable service. Doesn't look much from outside but go on in and you'll be pleasantly surprised. Even has the train times on the TV so you won't miss your trip home.

Been in there a fair bit recently while waiting for my bus around the corner. Lovely lively staff. Great selection. Great Atmos. The space itself is inviting and vibrant. Sat in there now enjoying a nice banoffee pie sour. Delicious!
