The Chip and Pin was set up by a small group of Melbourne people who share a passion for real ale.
During outings to the local beer festivals they discussed the idea of bringing a wider range of real ales to Melbourne and how to complement the existing popular pub and restaurant trade.
When a disused bank became available in the town, the friends jumped at the chance to take on this old building and to give it a new lease of life.
The bank has been sympethetically restored, respecting the needs of the conservation area whilst providing a new facility for the people of Melbourne and our many visitors.
Due to retirement, the micropub is now owned by Matthew & Diane Reed, who were long term customers of the Chip and loved it so much they bought it!!
