Blackthorn _ left this review about Shooters Sports Bar

A somewhat down at heal bar in the centre of Weston, it’s a long, narrow pub divided in to two rooms, one behind the other. The front bar has old wooden flooring, a long bar counter on the right with bar stools all along the front, a plasma showing the Olympics and a large selection of framed football shirts on the wall. A band were in the process of setting up their gear on a recent Thursday evening visit.

To the rear is another bar with a sports emphasis containing a pool table, quiz machine, darts board, pinball machine and a table football game. It’s a little gloomy with dark brown paintwork on the ceilings, whilst the wails had wood panelling on the lower part and rough cream paintwork above. The flooring was of indiscriminate nature having been worn away to a smooth black finish over the years, but may at one time have been some type of matting. There were plenty of posters on the walls advertising forthcoming bands, and something that looked like a condom machine, although on closer inspection we found that it dispensed disposable cameras. A couple of very old, and very low, black leather sofa’s and a couple of plasma’s completed the furniture. A dark and dingy corridor led further back to the loos where the gent’s door was clad with metal plate like you might find covering trenches and suchlike, whilst inside I found a cubicle built out of bare breeze blocks.

Unfortunately there were no real ales on tap, just John Smith’s Extra Smooth. Ciders were well represented though with Blackthorn, Strongbow, Thatcher’s Gold and Broadoak.
