Alfie's Wine Bar & Bistro, Litte Sutton

Post by Old Yard Dog » Thu Dec 15, 2016 10:59 am

This new venture on the A41 looks ready to open soon. However there is no sign of handpumps on the photo of the bar in the link below, which would be a pity

Two handpumps, as yet unbadged, have now been spotted through the window of this new bistro, which looks close to opening.

Sounds interesting!

I've put a skeleton entry on Whatpub https://whatpub.com/pubs/CLW/16931/alfi ... tle-sutton so please send any updates as and when you get them. I've guessed the building number as it is next to Holdi.

Cheers
Ian

Tip off from Brian Rimmer that it will open Sept 4th (according to their facebook feed). Good news!

Alfie's is now open. Two pristine handpumps but no real ale as yet. Bar staff uncertain as to whether it will appear at a future date.

Black Sheep now on sale :thumb:
Hope the locals drink it and cask ale stays on there.

Cask ale still remains in the form of Robinsons Dark Vader with Trooper "available soon" Rather upmarket here,a bit too posh for me but seems very popular.

Alfie's Wine Bar & Bistro is a big open brightly-lit square room on the main A41 road in Little Sutton, near the railway station. The bar is on the right hand side with the kitchen at the back. Non-diners are welcome to come in for a drink and the chairs are comfy.

I went in just after 9 pm on Sunday when the food had finished and the menus taken away and the place was consequently quite quiet. So I can't comment on the tucker but the advert says "specialist range of pizzas & pastas and a selection of stakes & burgers from the grill". Also vegetarian and gluten free options.

Robinsons Trooper was the only real ale on tap and it was in very good condition (3.5).

Doom Bar was the single real ale on tap last night. Sadly not all that many people were drinking it despite the absence of a keg or smooth bitter on the bar. Most people were drinking lager in branded glasses. Bottles of brewery conditioned Brew Dog beers were also on sale.

First time visit to Alfie's for a drink and expecting Robbo's beers was pleasantly surprised to be confronted with a seasonal from the Piddle brewery and found it very good at £3/pint, other cask was Bombardier. This bar wouldn't look out of place on Chester's high street never mind uptown Little Sutton and seemed very popular with the ladies during my visit.

The Piddle beer is still on here and still quite a decent drink,across the road at the Olde Red Lion Trooper is the regular with one-three national guests,on this occasion three from the Marstons umbrella. Still sad news over the road at the Travellers Rest where this former real ale stronghold during Camra's infancy remains keg only. Further down the road the Burleydam seems to have given up with real ale as none has been spotted since the beginning of the year, anyway its best to carry on to the excellent Halfway House,here Weetwood Best is the reglar on offer(£3.10/pint) along with two-three changing beers often from smaller breweries.

Currently serving just one cask beer, alternating between Wainwright and Sharp's Atlantic. The former was in very good nick last night.
