That’s right, take the mick (they probably are called Dick) out of John Smiths drinkers to promote your artisan micro pub in Amble.
Worked for me, although my first thought was “definite pre-emptive tick“.
Tiny place, bustling with a mixed crowd, reminded me immediately of the Angel in Belper.
The first thing you’ll notice is how similar the beer range is to the Mason’s.
Then you’ll casually peruse the menu and see they do Nettle cheese.
Well, why not ?
It was the cheese plate or chips, and chips aren’t healthy (are they ?).
The dads came in, eyeing up my table for four. Why do micropubs never have small tables ?
Great idea, though the cheeses made little impression if I’m honest (NCSS 2.5), but the Credence Porter was superb (NBSS 3.5). Same brewery two pubs five minutes apart, two very different impressions left. #CaskAleLottery.
And there’s the rub. You know what you’re getting with John Smiths.
