IF a small, intimate Micropub serving only the best cask ales sounds like the perfect drinking environment for you, then Derek Miles could be about to make your dream come true.
The 57-year-old business owner from Brimscombe has launched a planning application to build a Micropub right in the heart of Stroud.
Derek spoke to the SNJ about the growing phenomenon and his vision for the small free house.
“This new breed of pub is very much back to basics,” he said.
“We want to create something really different – a traditional, personal and authentic pub experience for people to come with their friends and enjoy a quiet drink”.
The industrious pair want to start their new business at 21 George Street – which was formerly occupied by the Absolutely Fabulous beauty salon. They are hoping to transform the empty building into a cosy and intimate space, with a small bar offering a “quiet drinking experience”.
