Went for a 'quick pint' after work with friends. Great atmosphere and stayed longer than planned as it was not full of normal city centre 'professional drinkers' went home early mind... Had a 'quick bite' from the menu and was pleasantly surprised, well done! Oh, the Brains SA was fantastic as well. Best beer in UK.

Typical pub grub menu in good location. Cold and draughty due to seating by the door (always open due to Saturday shoppers) and also cold air blowing through vents. Very popular for drinks whilst Christmas shopping

When my burger arrived it was burned so bad it was dry, crunchy and no taste. The lovely bar man did refund me without me... More

An unusual design which makes a nice change for a Brains bar; modern but not brash - very unique; I hope it doesn't change soon. I have had some good times in there but also some poor ones. The poor ones have often been the staff being slow or disinterested when the place is quiet (which is quite often) and... More

When we mentioned the child noise IN A BAR to... More

I like how they have converted the old brewery into this venue with some of the original walls still showing. Interesting menu and some lovely beers Give it a go
