I popped in here albeit briefly en-route to a few quick halves before catching the train back home on Tuesday 8th December 2015. I hadn’t even been here before and if truth be told hadn’t really ever noticed it quite prominently placed at the top end (Cross end) of the High Street.
It was quite popular when I visited and I have to say it was a bit bigger than I expected, its relatively narrow, typical layout with fridges and shelving all down one side a tall central shelving rack running all down the centre with occasional breaks to nip through to the other side and the counter on the LH side near the front.
Whilst I didn’t have a good gander around I didn’t notice that the beers were anywhere other than the fridge section which can be found on the RH side as you enter. There were a number of Eastern European offerings available and I guess that I could have added to my Polish or Lithuanian rates quite easily as I didn’t recognise any of the beers on offer, one of which was worth buying only for the fact that it had some random picture of Penelope Cruz emblazoned across the front. However I never purchased as I was rather laden down with work stuff already.
I didn’t check the prices but Glen will be right with his review below and so I guess they are quite cheap. Not a huge choice but to be fair if you are knocking up an Eastern European feast and was in here for food (great food range btw) then it would be worth getting a couple of bottles or cans to compliment the dishes being prepared. I will pop in here again and pick up a bottle or two.
