I wrote about The Needle & Pin a couple of weeks ago, so go and visit that post to learn more about Loughborough’s newest pub, and its history. I predicted more visits and more reviews. I was right.
First up today, The Needle & Pin Brew #3 by Pheasantry Brewery. Yes, that’s right The Needle & Pin have commissioned their own beers to be served in the pub. Brew #3 is a golden dry hopped version of Pheasantry Brewery’s Dancing Dragonfly, and is hoppy, dark golden ale, very drinkable for 5% – good stuff.
A quick snack is required, a tasty beef brisket roll from The Hog Stop across the road:-
And another drink, a Cavendish Bridge by Shardlow Brewing Company, this was a fairly standard bitter with slight hints of biscuit:-
The Needle & Pin is definitely my new favourite pub 🙂
