What is a Micropub?

“A Micropub is a small free house which listens to its customers, serves mainly cask ales, promotes conversation and shuns all forms of electronic entertainment.”


Early Doors was set up to showcase some of the wonderful Cask Ale being produced in the local area from Microbreweries such as Gun Dog Ales Woodford Halse, Great Oakley Brewery Tiffield,

Towcester Mill Brewery, Hart Family Brewers Wellingborough, Potbelly Brewery Kettering and Phipps NBC Northampton.

As well as locally brewed Cask Ales we sell Award Winning Vale of Welton Cider, lovingly produced by John Malvern at his 10 Acre Cider Apple Orchard less than 2 miles away from Early Doors in Welton Village.

“We believe in supporting local business and the local economy. We pride ourselves on the quality of the products we sell and the relaxing comfortable environment for our customers to enjoy them in. If you have any questions then please feel free to contact us”
