Alan Winfield left this review about The Long Bar

The Long Bar is opposite the Punch Bowl.
Once inside as the name implies there is a long narrow room which is bare boarded,the bar runs down the left side,the seating is normal tables and chairs,the rear area is up one step.
There was one real ale on which was Doom Bar,this was a decent enough drink.
The pub was very busy on my Saturday afternoon visit as there was a wedding party in.

Blackthorn _ left this review about The Long Bar

A long and narrow pub just off the Old Market roundabout, this seems a popular spot and attracted a wide variety of punters of all ages on a recent visit, although they all seemed to be male apart from the friendly barmaid – it’s not often you get a glass changed because it’s too warm. Colour scheme is unusual with all the woodwork being brown (even the sensor for the alarm next to the door hadn’t escaped) and there was even brown wooden boards on the ceiling. Much of the walls were exposed stone and had been painted yellow. Black beams interspersed the stonework.

The bar counter is half way up on the right, and to the left are a number of wooden partitions. At the rear there is a high, vaulted ceiling again all yellow and black which is an unusual, but not unattractive, feature, although the music was a little loud back here to have an easy conversation. Toilets were surprisingly plush with new dark grey tiles and recessed blue down-lighters. There was a plasma at the front showing the football which was somewhat annoyingly located right next to one of the tables. There was also another one at the rear. The only food offering appeared to be a solitary Ginster’s pie sat in a warming rack.

Ciders are clearly the main focus here and there was Blackthorn, Thatcher’s Traditional, Cheddar Valley and Natch to choose from. The latter was offered draught or canned! The solitary beer was Courage Best.
