See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

The Macintosh Ale House opened in July 2023 as an outlet for beers from the Macintosh Ales brewery. Charles Macintosh is the genial host behind the bar as well as brewing the beer at Orbit brewery in Walworth. Usually two beers are available, the Best Bitter on handpump and the Pale Ale on keg. Later in the year, there are plans for extending the beer range brewed.

The premises are part of a small mews of former stables behind the Clarence pub on Church Street, it is nicely hidden and a secret haven for those in the know. Seating inside is around tables for about 20 drinkers and a few stools at the bar, crisps available. Decor is plain with a growing amount of beer and brewing memorabilia."
