Anchored in Worthing
Officially the first micropub in Sussex and winner of the CAMRA Regional Pub of The Year 2017. Don’t let the Doctor Who Tardis doorway fool you – this really is a micro, micropub !

You’ll always be in for a warm welcome from 2019 Imbibe Personalities of the Year winners, Aaron and John, who offer an array of local cask ales, gin, prosecco, bottles and cans, alcohol and gluten free beers.
Keep your eyes peeled for events galore, from pizza Wednesdays, pop up food events and even seasonal spooky ghost-reading. Definitely a stop off on anyone’s micropub tour.
The Grizzly Bear
Situated just by West Worthing station, the Grizzly Bears neon sign will draw you into a darkly painted micropub, reminiscent of an old library. Even the toilets are hidden behind a secret doorway concealed as a bookshelf. The Grizzly Bear made headlines as the first card only bar, so remember to bring your plastic if you want a drink.
This bar also doubles up as an event space. Past favourites include “Interviews With a Serial Killer” and “Folk Instrument Workshops”.
Green Man Ale & Cider House
Winner of the CAMRA Pub of the Year 2018 & 2019 and Cider of the Year 2018 & 2019, Green Man Ale & Cider House is definitely a hidden gem.
Owner Les, will warmly greet you to this community focused pubs which runs a monthly charity quiz night. The Green Man is dog friendly and advocates no screens.
The Georgi Fin Micropub
Head up to Goring Road and you’ll find the stylish Georgi Fin, with its wooden interior and exposed brick wall. A place to enjoy ales, ciders, wine and homemade snacks in a relaxed friendly atmosphere.
The Old Bike Store
Paying homage to its former incarnation, this former bike shop offers live music, events and brewery takeovers – a chance to meet the makers from local Sussex breweries. Check out Snackboard Sunday’s for live acoustic jazzy vibes, and tasty snacks plus new bar games for an added brain-teaser.
Beer No Evil
With four ever changing taps and a large selection of beers, ciders, red and white wine, Beer No Evil also hosts popular “meet the brewer” events. With cans available to take away, you can bring the micropub experience into your own home.
