Serves as a gig venue in the evenings (not open in the daytime) and indeed that was the reason of my visit. Quite good for what it is, and outside there’s a beer garden and a pizza hut (once you’ve navigated the airlock doors). Half a dozen keg at the bar from some more interesting places like Sheps and Youngs rather than Fosters or Coors. As I didn’t visit it as a ‘pub’ I won’t leave a mark. In fact I’m not even sure whether it should be listed here tbh as although some evenings are free others aren’t…so it doesn’t really function as a pub…hmmm...

This is the town's main music venue, well actually the only music venue. Used to visit here, these days it does not interest me. Beer on tap was generally the likes of Guinness, Grolsch and San Miguel. (This may have changed) Not a place for the keen ale drinker. Go if music is your thing, otherwise not worth it.

The Boiler Room is essentially a music pub although it is located in quite a pleasant residential area. Music pubs generally tend to mean basic dark interiors, flourescent lights, poor selection of overpriced beers and a motley collection of indoe kids, metal heads and goths. The Boiler Room meets most of these criteria although prices are quite reasonable. The stage area is small and there are sevral awkward pillars that obscure vthe sight line but it is still a lot better than someothers that I won't care to mention here. The building is very wheelchair friendly and it is obvious that some thought has gone into arranging the interior when the place was converted. An airlock leads through to a decent beer garden and ensures that no noise escapes to wake up the slumbering kids in the nearby houses. There is also a Thai kitchen which seemed to be doing a good take away trade when we were there as well as attract the local feline colonies. All in all, a pretty decent place for what it is.
