Blackthorn _ left this review about Bar Code

As Jon has pointed out below, this was until recently a youth only, and consequently no alcohol, establishment, but is now a regular pub, although whether or not anyone over the age of about 20 would actually choose to visit it is another matter.

It consists of one large, open plan room with an old wooden floor and painted white air conditioning ducting in the high ceiling. It seems to have something of a sports emphasis with several large screens, a Sky Sports fixture list and lots of England flags draped from the ceiling. In addition to this there were a few fruit machines, pool table, table top arcade game of some sort and even a punch bag machine. I’m not entirely convinced that encouraging customers to punch is the best way of avoiding aggression, but then I suppose it’s better that they attack a punch bag rather than other punters.

The music was a little too loud for my taste, although not to the extent that it made conversation particularly difficult. Having recently opened as a pub you may have thought that some refurbishment work would have taken place, but there was little evidence of this and the loos in particular were in a pretty disgusting state. Two of the three toilets didn’t even have a seat.

Unfortunately there were no ales on tap, real or otherwise, unless you count some smoothflow type thing. Ciders fared marginally better with Thatcher’s Gold and Strongbow Dark Fruit. Overall I can see little reason to visit here unless perhaps there’s a match on that you want to see, but even then there are better options nearby.

This used to be a council run youth bar but after photoing a while ago and then being in Weston recently it seems to have become a full blown pub which after watching an England game in thinking it may have diversified for World Cup continues to be a pub so time to add it.

After passing on Wednesday night the new banner additions do refer to it as licensed premises further to the above review based on my football viewing visit.
