With cozy booths, a traditionally-styled bar and a pool table with a view of the brewery, Parrotdog Bar takes its inspiration from the great pubs and taverns of yesteryear. At the heart of the bar, 15 revolving taps showcase our Core Range, Flora, Microflora, L.B Beer and special, one off beers such as the Cuba Dupa XPA. Alongside their beer we serve a selection of ‘New York’ style deli sandwiches that focus on high quality meats, cheeses, breads, pickles and seasonal produce.
