Beer Matters Community Micropub - 7 Tuly Street, Barnstaple, Devon. EX31 1DH

If you love real cask ale from all over the Country, served at its very best, then Beer Matters community micropub could be for you. Our objective is to offer you, our customers, a choice of the best cask ales from local breweries and further afield, all in one place.


We, Simon and Alison, look forward to welcoming you to our community micropub in Barnstaple. We're providing a real alternative for cask ale lovers who are looking for a more traditional, conversation-based experience - no TV, no loud music, no children.


We hope to make Beer Matters micropub a valued community asset, where people can enjoy great beer and great conversation, and get involved.


So if you're looking for a real ale experience that's getting harder and harder to find, then we hope you'll support us.
