The pool table and dart board were there in Oct /Nov 2014. I was not there unfortunately, but family and friends were. Some had not been there before, all liked the fact you can take your own food, (favourite take-away can be delivered), the staff are all very friendly and will set up the tables for your food before it arrives. There is a small charge but, that's no real issue, as the ale and beer are great.

Those who had not been before will defiantly be going back. There's also free Wifi there, so a haven for the kids to catch up whatever they need to catch up on their I things.

Enjoy

Paul

To be fair Wonderwall I haven't been to The Shed for 3 years, I was a big supporter of it in its early days but our experience the last time we went has put us off for good particularly as it mirrored the experiences of several other posters that I had doubted.

The Shed has a pool table and a darts board or did have a couple of weeks ago... As a hire boat you can moor in the Faircraft boatyard and take a 30 second stroll to the Shed... enjoy

I'd heard it was closed.

Whatever, don't take their word for it that their "real ale" is real - it was racked bright and kept in plastic bags! Did it change?

" Whatever, don't take their word for it that their "real ale" is real "

There are very few places that could claim differently.

Once you start adding American or Czech or German or various other foreign hops...
Once the beers are as pale in colour as lager...
Once they taste and / or smell of fruit....
Once they use wheat instead of barley....

Then they are not traditional real British beer (ale is actually un-hopped, a point that Camra always missed.)

That rules out a very large proportion of the "ales" that make an appearance at Camra beer festivals let alone in local pubs.

Fortunately, if you look really hard it is still possible to find real traditional English beers brewed with noble hops (English hops like Fuggles and Goldings), barley, water and yeast. With maybe a touch of roasted barley to add a bit of colour and depth.

The hybrid larger / ales are as much real and traditional to this country as the Broads are a real National park. In other words just a bit of a con for marketing reasons.
If the BA duping works only half as well as the "real ale" effort they will be highly delighted as just about everyone seems to have fallen for it.

The Shed does NOT serve real ale. Period.

Exile: really, you once had me thinking you knew something about beer!

To refute your points:-

There are very few places that could claim differently.
* There are thousands that claim, correctly, differently.

Once you start adding American or Czech or German or various other foreign hops...
* Nope, beers have been made with various hops for ages: you miss the point.

Once the beers are as pale in colois ur as lager...
* Daft. Was Boddingtons Bitter or Timothy Taylor's Landlord not a beer?

Once they taste and / or smell of fruit....
* Many always have!

Once they use wheat instead of barley....
* Very few use wheat.

Then they are not traditional real British beer (ale is actually un-hopped, a point that Camra always missed.)
* WRONG! You are talking of the old fashioned "bitter" or maybe (faux) IPA that old farts will only drink. All of the above are just as real with one caveat - see below.

That rules out a very large proportion of the "ales" that make an appearance at Camra beer festivals let alone in local pubs.
* Wrong again. Give us some examples.

Fortunately, if you look really hard it is still possible to find real traditional English beers brewed with noble hops (English hops like Fuggles and Goldings), barley, water and yeast. With maybe a touch of roasted barley to add a bit of colour and depth.
* True but you don't have to look hard: Adnams, Shepherd Neame and Harveys are all favourites with us BUT other beers are just as "real".

The hybrid larger / ales are as much real and traditional to this country as the Broads are a real National park. In other words just a bit of a con for marketing reasons.
* Sheer codswallop. You may not like their taste but most are as well made, in the same way, as the styles you appear to prefer.

If the BA duping works only half as well as the "real ale" effort they will be highly delighted as just about everyone seems to have fallen for it.
* Stupid comment.

Right let's get down to brass tacks.

About the only correct point made by Exile is that ale is not hopped. So what?

If we use the CAMRA definition of real ale (sic) then all of the newer styles so hated by Exile are truly real. This means no additives, barley, malt, hops, yeast and water - AND secondary fermentation in the cask in the cellar with no added CO2.

This raises a conundrum: craft ales/beer. These are almost always filtered and pasteurised in the brewery (no secondary fermentation in the cellar) and are served with CO2 or NO gas pressure. Trouble is (for CAMRA nerds) nearly all of these beers are of very high quality.

I've been a real ale drinker for far too long and once hated blonde ales e.g. Hopback Summer Lightning. I still don't like HSL but over the last 6 years or so have been won over by the newer styles and flavours. Anyone who isn't smitten by e.g. Oakham Bishop's Farewell or Adnams Ghost Ship just doesn't like good beer.

I was in Neatishead White Horse this afternoon and a guy asked for Wherry for his father "because he only drinks traditional bitter". Blinkered! (Actually, calling that foul brew a traditional bitter is a slur on the wonderful bitters made elsewhere.)

I would suggest that Exile try the WH but clearly he'll hate it.

Take no notice, folks: many of these newer beers are, frankly, awesome and a delight so try them!

(Btw, lest anyone takes offence at my old fart comment above I don't care because...I am one.)

I think you might find Richard that Exy has just as much right to his opinion as you have without being abused. He is actually correct in what he states, that real British ales/beers are as he states. You are equally right in that the flowery perfumed muck that is currently in vogue is also real ale/beer just not real British ale/beer. Every is entitled to their own opinion they are not entitled to their own "facts" Now I'm an old fart and to be honest I'm not a fan of either style.

Nope, Exile is flat wrong.

There are some wonderful beers around today. If he doesn't like them that's fine but don't knock them and make palpably inaccurate criticisms of them.

Oh and TT are you still a "lager" drinker?

Went in The Shed last Tuesday and was pleasantly surprised. Being called the Shed I expected an old shed with a face over  but IMHO found it to be a nice venue  tastefully done out.

The Governor made us most welcome and we had an enjoyable game of killer pool with the locals who we found to be very friendly. Cheers

Kind Regards
