The Full Moon is a very large pub with a nice mural covering all of its outside walls with stars.
There is a pay booth at the entrance but not in use on my Saturday afternoon visit.
Once inside the main bar is oblong shaped and runs to the rear,the bar faces on entry,this long room is roughly divided into three areas by walls,the front area has normal tables and chairs,with the middle area having a few settees and more normal tables and chairs,there is a pool table to the far rear.
There was a decent choice of real ales on the bar,i had a drink of Dawkins Bristol Gold which went down well,the other beers noted were Steam Box Soul Train and Steam Box Piston Broke,there were a couple of other real ales i failed to note.
There was a decent band playing at the front of the room in what was called the battle of the bands,they only did two songs before the next band came on,it was a shame the pub was not that busy despite the free live bands to watch.
I thought this was a decent pub to have a drink in.

A very pleasant pub, suprisingly big and quite traditional. You could almost be in a country pub. Not busy on a Tuesday night, but not dead either. They seemed to be doing food until quite late.
A couple of beers on tap (Butcombe Blond being one) plus Ashton Press and Strongbow ciders.

Recent revisit found the ales were poor and the barman had little to no interest in doing anything about it. Sad.

These are essentially two completely different bars, which have recently been massively overhauled from dingy (but popular) Goth/Rock venues, the Eclipse being a live and loud venue, with the Full Moon being a bar only.

First up is the Eclipse. This is now a huuuge 'trad' bar with many 'trad' fittings bussed in at what must have been a considerable expense. It certainly looks good, and had a couple of OK handpulls. However it was near deserted, and they're going to have to do a lot of advertising to the students to get an atmosphere in.

Secondly, the Full Moon. Arrrghhh, well the Undead will be turning in their graves when they see this. It's all blue-lit, whitewashed walls serving only lager and spirits to a zombiefied clientele glued to the big screen watching the big screen. Actually that last bit sounded right up an EMO's street but let me assure you that it isn't at all, but just an example of the wonderful flexibility of the English language.

Was it all worth it? We'll see, but the Goth numbers in town were certainly dying off (ho ho) since the mid 90's, so something had to be done to at least one of the venues. But I feel a little twinge of nostalgia for lost history.
