Dating back to at least the mid-19th century, this is a rather well turned out backstreet pub, of which there are many in the city and clearly a Mecca for ale drinkers, despite the obvious contradiction. It’s quite an industrial place with a hipster vibe: bare boards, bare brick, bulkhead lamps, exposed metal trunking and solid wood furniture.
It’s the beer that’s the star here – literally – and as expected, my half of Darkstar’s Hophead was very nice indeed. Everyone else must have been enjoying theirs too as there was much cheer about the place.
Unfortunately, I’m more of a horse brasses, Toby jugs and Yard of Ale over the bar sort-of person but am happy to go along with the majority as they made it a great last group pub for the evening.

Real Ale Ray left this review about The Evening Star

A traditional style pub with good atmosphere and a good range of some excellent beers. The pub was open plan and I especially liked the curved bar counter and pine clad booths over on the left hand side. My Dark Star APA was in great shape and if I hadn't a train to catch, I would have liked to have tried the Gun IPA and the Kissingate Black Cherry Mild. Looking forward to another visit.
