5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2011

i think skiving schola has been under estimated as the drinks are cheap, the staff are all genuine people that are easy going and alway happy to help and apart from that its got good music and a good old drinking sence for all groups from chavs to goths :D

“OK bar, better around”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2011

Mainly student bar that is a little dingy. The staff are generally friendly, although as stated by the previous contributor, the bouncers can be less so. Prices are a little cheaper than nearby Ride, cuba! etc, and there are some drinks deals, so if you're prepared to lower your standards a little you could have a few cheap drinks here.

“Pub near uni better before the bouncers start work.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2011

For many years a family run curry shed, then reconstructed as student bar. Can be quite relaxed late afternoon and early evening. Generally easy going and friendly when we've been in except twice after nine pm when we encountered the slight intimidation, almost menace of the door staff. Problem seems to be the combined binge rowdy ambience brought on by four student bars and one or two burger/food vans and too many taxis all centred on a small car park bay right beside the North Hill main drag. There are easier less hazardous places to have a few jars with your mates not far off.
