I was here with some friends for a birthday meal and as there was quite a big group of us we were asked to pre-order our food. The menu is extensive and had a lot of things I liked the sound of but I eventually settled on the Mac Doggy Dog; a hotdog with pulled pork and mac & cheese on top with sweet potato fries and a side of burnt ends. The staff were really friendly and the place was a lot of fun even though it was a Tuesday night and it was pretty quiet. The food tasted great, although my bun was a little dry. The burnt ends were really good and everyone really enjoyed their meals. It was competitively priced and had a good selection of drinks including some good cocktails.I'd happily go back here again to eat and/or drink.

Almost hidden away on Division Street (it has a very unassuming entrance) it's a great sports bar with drinks, great US inspired food and loads of Live Sport on big screens + a gaming area with pool tables etc.

We had originally planned to go to Bungalows and Bears for a meal as it's a favourite for us but as it was Tramlines there was a "no under 18's rule" in place so our 16 year old daughter wasn't allowed in. Fair enough that B and B had decided that was what they wanted but the door staff could do with a bit of training in customer etiquette - they were pretty unpleasant. So we decided to try the Common Room at the Forum and we ended up being very grateful for B and B's turning us away. It's been a very long time since we've experienced such great service, we couldn't have asked for more from the staff - from taking the orders, accommodating changes we wanted to what came with the dishes, keeping us updated with an unexpected delay on the food, checking everything with our food was ok. Great service without being overbearing. The food choice was spot on for us .... something for adults and the kids and the eating area was stylish and enjoyable. There's a choice of dining areas - a relaxed area closer to the bar where there are tv's and you order your food and drinks at the bar or an area where you can be waited on at your table. Prices were reasonable and adults and kids all loved it. We'll certainly be returning to the Common Room, not sure we'll be going back to B and B's though.

A group of us went out to play pool. It was nice and the wait wasn't too long for the tables. The drinks were a bit expensive compared to other bars in the area. There was a nice sporting atmosphere.

The food is excellent up grub - big portions, tasty burgers, onion rings, fries etc. - and it has been recently refurbished. Great place for a drink after work on a Friday or during the football at the weekends. Don't expect a quiet first date meal, though. This is not the place for that.
