Feasting family style is perfect for special occasions or groups.
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.
