Pint Shop is all about creating a place that embraces eating and drinking equally. A place where you feely equally at home having a few beers, a light lunch or a full blown feast. A place where people from all walks of life, rub shoulders with each other.

Our inspiration for Pint Shop came from the Beer Houses of the 1830’s;

The original ‘Beer Houses’ or ‘Tom and Jerry Shops’ as they became known, are viewed by many as the birth place of today’s pub. At this point in time beer was a rich man’s drink because of its high tax levels. The poor drank gin and lots of it, mostly in illegal gin shops. Then in 1830, in an attempt to reduce public drunkenness, improve the health of the nation and encourage free trade, The Beer Act was passed. The act allowed anyone that paid a small fee to brew beer and sell it in their home, Beer Houses were born. It even allowed a low ABV beer, called Table Beer to be brewed for children, women and servants as the tap water was so unsafe! A new generation of beer drinkers were born.

We want to take the spirit of those original Beer Houses, namely; craft beer, intimacy & fun, throw in some killer food, cooked on coals, just as it was 1830 and deliver it with a bunch of amazing people.


Our Christmas menu is available from Monday 30th November to Wednesday 23rd December.

To book or ask questions call 01223 352293 or email Initially we’ll take a provisional enquiry from you, then within 24 hours (mon-fri) our reservations team will call you back to firm up the exact time & date we can offer you.

When you call/email us we need to know:

  • Preferred date and ideally a back up date
  • Preferred time, the more flexible the better
  • Number of people, if you’re not sure a min/max will be fine

As a guide these are the rough times we can offer:

  • Lunch - 12/1pm
  • Late Lunch - 2.30pm/3.30pm
  • After Work - 5pm/6pm
  • Dinner - 8pm/9pm

Once we’ve agreed a time & date, we will hold your reservation for up to 7 days. Within that timeframe we need a £10, non-refundable, deposit per person to finalise the booking. We do not require you to pre-order any food, we will take care of this on the day. It’s much easier for everyone that way.

With the exception of the Dinner sitting you’re table will be re-booked, we will let you know what time the table needs to be vacated. You can of course move through to the bar at this point and continue the celebrations. The bar will open until Midnight throughout December, so plenty of time to have fun.

On the day, we ask that you arrive promptly. Even better arrive early and have a drink or two, our bar will be open from 11.30am every day.
