A CUSTOMER'S suggestion has led to a micropub branching out to a new location in Worcestershire.

Ale Hub Micropub will be opening its latest bar after a customer said they should open a micropub in the new Yew Tree Village housing development in Droitwich.

The micropub already runs a successful bar in Abbotsbury Court, St Peter's, as well as locations in Dickens Heath, Sutton Coldfield and Shirley.

The new location is due to open in early April on Woodland Way, off Pulley Lane.

Campbell McDiarmid said: "The St. Peter’s one is going well.

"As for Droitwich, we were informed by a customer that they were developing a new housing estate in Droitwich, and they thought an Ale Hub would work well there.

"We investigated it and also thought it would work well and provide a much need service to the new development."

Family-run Ale Hub has took over the former One Stop shop in Abbotsbury Court, St Peter's opening in September last year.

The family behind Ale Hub are mum and dad Neil and Sue McDiarmid, and siblings Connor, Campbell and Brodie.

Customers enjoy a range of cask ales, craft beers and Guinness, lager and cider on tap along with regular quiz nights.

There is also a variety of gins as well as bar snacks and even dog treats for four-legged friends who are allowed in the micropub in St Peter's.

Speaking about the St Peter's bar opening, Campbell said: "When we were renovating the building, if you were here for a couple of hours at least four or five people would be popping their head in.

"They would ask when we were opening and what we were doing, it caused a good amount of interest.

"We couldn't be happier, it has been great.

"Everyone has been really welcoming and saying they were screaming out for something like this in the local area.

"The early signs are really positive."
