There’s a growing trend to have Micro Pubs open on the High Street. They are less expensive to run and help solve the problem of filling vacant shops.

They are being described as the future and could save the declining pub industry. Since 1980 the number of pubs has slumped from 69,000 to fewer than 50,000 today. Landlords are taking advantage of the cheaper space and are converting closed down shops into a thriving local pub.

Among the Micro Pubs is The Penny Farthing, in Crayford Kent where the local brew is a speciality and there’s no actual bar. There’s also no music, TV or fruit machines.

The Campaign for Real Ale has given it a five star rating and praises its determination to succeed among the bigger pubs in the area.  CAMRA says while the number of pubs across the UK is sadly in decline, micro pubs are one area that seems to be thriving.

So, went to the micro Penny Farthing to check out the scene and catch up with the landlords Bob and Bev Baldwin.
