New Lion Brewery BarStation Road
See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
This pop-up bar is only open Friday and Saturday nights, but is proving very popular. A trestle table and a homemade bench made from empty casks with a smooth plank attached make up the seating, and customers sit or stand surrounded by fermenter tanks and brewing equipment. In very busy times people perch on the stairs (leading to the brewery office/hop store), but most are happy to stand around and chat and drink the brewery offerings. Pandit IPA is generally available, along with one or more of the brewery’s 3 other main ales. In addition, there is usually a supply of ‘white label’ brews in bottle, which are limited release ales only sold at the brewery. From time to time the ‘cellar series’ are also for sale; these are for laying down, or drinking now.
