Going The Extra Mile

It's been an amazing ten days or so since opening. Really busy and met some great people who enjoy decent beer and good company.

Yesterday we had a chap in from our old stomping ground of South East London. Yesterday lunchtime he was in Kent doing a crawl of old and very new micropubs, especially The Conqueror Alehouse in Ramsgate which has just won Kent CAMRA's Pub of the Year 2012. Many congratulations to Colin and his wife.

Anyway, the chap from London got a message from a friend yesterday in Kent that we had opened in Carnforth. Lo and behold around 6-30 he got off a train and joined us for a pint of Dancing Duck Abduction. An hour or so later he was off back to London via Leeds and York due home around 1-00am.

Now that's what I call a dedicated real ale and micropub connoisseur.


  1. Yes indeed, quite a character. His friend who texted (Chris?) was in the following Saturday too.
