Pint Shop is all about creating a place that embraces eating and drinking in equal measures. A place where you feel equally at home having a few beers, a light lunch or a full-blown feast. A place where people from all walks of life, rub shoulders with each other.

Richard and Benny’s inspiration for Pint Shop came from the beer houses of the 1830’s. The original ‘Beer Houses’ or ‘Tom and Jerry Shops’ as they became known, are viewed by many as the birthplace of today’s pub. This was a time when beer was considered a rich man’s drink because of its high tax levels. The poor drank gin – and lots of it – mostly in illegal gin shops. Then, in 1830, in an attempt to reduce public drunkenness, improve the health of the nation and encourage free trade, The Beer Act was passed. This allowed anyone that paid a small fee to brew beer and sell it in their own homes – and so beer houses were born. It even allowed a low ABV beer called table Beer to be brewed for children, women and servants as the tap water then was so unsafe! Thus, a new generation of beer drinkers was created.

Pint Shop takes the spirit of the original beer houses – namely craft beer, intimacy and fun – and throws in some killer food cooked on the coals, just as it was in 1830 and has it all delivered in the heart of the city by an amazing people.
