It highlights venues selected by its members ‘as places to savour good beers from small breweries as well as cask-conditioned lagers and world beers and some pubs are highlighted for serving real ciders too’.
CAMRA said: “Freshfield’s first micropub has a focus on all things local. Its beers are chosen to showcase the area’s brewers, including the on-site brewery, supplemented by one ‘foreign’ ale a month from outside the region. The few spirits offered also have their provenance checked. A fridge of bottled beers adds variety.”
CAMRA said: “A community pub at its heart with three distinct areas – a bar with numerous handpumps, a dining room serving quality food, and ‘the flags’, where well-behaved dogs are welcome. Real cider is available on occasion during festivals. This is a place to meet, talk and spend time with friends old and new.”
CAMRA said: “Micropub in a row of shops close to Hillside train station. It opened in 2016 in what was a Martins Bank branch until 1978; the Martins logo was a grasshopper. There is outdoor seating at the front and a secluded beer garden to the rear. Eight changing real ales and six real ciders are served. Local CAMRA Cider Pub of the Year 2022.”
CAMRA said: An attractively decorated bar in what was once a hairdresser’s in an area that previously had no pubs or bars but now has two award-winning outlets. Two hand pumps offer a varied choice of beers, served and is mostly frequented by a mature, discerning clientele of regulars. A former local CAMRA Pub of the Year.” (Image: The Pines/Facebook)
