Helen Iwanczuk left this review about The Springbok Bar

The Springbok bar, began life as Gilsmiths Hippodrome on 22nd September 1913. The building was designed by H.R. Rainger and was built on the site of the conservative club, with the original facade being used. It was renamed The Coliseum in 1919 and became a cinema from 1931 until it's closure in 1974. . Various initiatives were tried to keep the building as a functioning site, for example Bransons snooker club and latterly The Springbok Bar.
