68 /100 8 MARKET SQUARE
“In the market square with outside seating which is great in the summer time. A standard Mad Squirrel beer selection with a few guests. A smaller bar, but with plenty of character and an awesome location. Combine with a visit to Trekkers.“

“A super addition to the local beer scene serving 12 taps of quality UK beers including some very impressive local brews. In addition there is a superb array of bottle and cans. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Bar snacks are served. Nice outside terrace in the summer time. Well worth stopping by. Ticks galore!“

78 /100 8 MARKET SQUARE
“Visited on Sunday 09/10/16 around 1.30pm. Set in the market sqaure (about a 5 minutes walk from the station) the set up is very similar to the Amersham shop with a dozen tap lines and well over 100 bottles on offer. A small single roomed bar that seats perhaps a dozen with more seating outside on the square. Having visited the Wycombe bar the previous day the selection was pretty similar but there were a few differences in both the tap and bottle range. The place was doing a good trade for a Sunday lunch / afternoon with perhaps upwards of a dozen locals. Beer range on tap was about 50% Red Squirrel and 50% guest including Anarchy, Fallen, Blue Monkey and Tiny Rebel amongst others. Service was friendly and knowledgable ... the manager had just come back from IMBC and knew his stuff. Overall another great little bar in this chain.“

“I visited the Red Squirrel Brewery Shop/Café bar on Monday 3rd August 2015. This place is located reasonably central at the end of the main pedestrianised shopping street where it opens out, I think that the address suggests Market Square. This is the sister venue to the Berkhamstead Red Squirrel Brewery Shop/Café bar that I visited on Saturday 1st August with Barry. Beer choice is broadly similar to the Berkhamstead venue with the likes of Kernel, Tiny Rebel, BBN, Beavertown, Weird Beard etc available along with Red Squirrel, of course the latter being the owners of the establishment have a few of their beers on tap and in both bottles or mini keg. There are a couple of tables and chairs situated outside and whilst I didn’t take too much notice there maybe the odd seat/table inside. As you enter this place the beers are on racks on the LH side and there is some racking on the RH side also but this appeared to be mainly ciders and perries. A small bar and serving area occupies the rear RH side of this place with toilets to the rear. It is a slightly smaller set up when compared to the Berkhamstead venue but beer choice is about the same in terms of bottle choice and the amount of taps. I never had a beer here though I did purchase a few to take away, the young female serving said that the Berkhamstead venue sold more bottles than they do here.It’s very light and airy with large windows at the front. This is a nice little place and brilliant if you lived in Chesham I guess, if I lived closer I would definitely use it frequently.“

“Been open for about six months now (I think). Really excellent selection of all UK beer. The bottle selection varies depending on what they get it. London breweries often feature; Kernel, Beavertown, Brew By Numbers. There also often feature less prolific brewers, such as Hackney, Brixton and Fourpure. There’s a big feature from other regional brews; Red Squirrel, XT, Aylesbury, etc. and further afield; Tiny Rebel, Bristol Beer Factory, West Berks, Anarchy. It’s a really good place to find new UK brews. On top of the large bottle selection, there’s also draught. Heavy Red Squirrel presence, but they get rotating guests. Signature Brew have done a tap takeover and I believe that there are plans for more. 12 taps (half keg, half cask). Beer can be taken away in containers, or drunk in. The price is between £2.25 and £2.75 a pint (really good). Fairly small interior, but a few tables and chairs. They should have some outside too, but there are currently long term road works going on, so space is often non-existent. Service can be a little slow; one at a time affair and it can be hard to get served if they’re busy. Overall though, this really is a great shop if you’re looking for some new ticks in the UK craft (and craftier traditional brewery) beer.“
