A Micropub is a very small, one room public house.
The concept is attributed to publican Martyn Hillier and his pub, The Butchers Arms, in Herne, Kent, England.
Each pub offers their own unique twist but they all stay true to the winning micropub formula: … a small freehouse which listens to its customers, mainly serves cask ales, promotes conversation, shuns all forms of electronic entertainment and dabbles in traditional pub snacks.
The highest concentration of micropubs is in Kent – so much so, that there is now a pub crawl!
Here are my favourite three Real Cider micropubs:
- Early doors Draycott, Nr Cheddar, Somerset
- Goldy’s Ale & Cider Bar, Tiverton, Devon
- Old Star Ale and Cider house, Shoreham by Sea, West Sussex
