Originally The Three Compasses, this 17th Century town pub describes itself as a rock 'n' roll bar. It was previously known as West Bar and City One. Certainly the the rock music was present, both on the sound system and in the form of a set of vinyl records affixed to the wall alongside posters and other musicalia, including a 1950s jukebox. The 'roll' bit was represented by a bacon baguette I enjoyed, although it was probably the smallest baguette I'd ever seen, making it poor value for money. Other dishes, including a vegan burger called 'Devil Gate Drive', appeared better value. The interior has been opened out, timber floorboards restored and the whole given a very pseudo-Gothic black and red paint job. The main bar area is sparsely furnished, leaving plenty of room for vertical drinking. There is a smaller area dominated by a screen and projector, then a larger lounge area at the back. The staff were enthusiastic, pleasant and engaging, if a little weird. The pub hosts regular live music acts, though it must get a bit crowded as it's not that large. There was a range of rums on offer, but the best thing about this pub is its beer. Old Dairy Red Top and Kent Brewery's Black and Gold were in perfect condition, Doombar was also on offer alongside Old Rosie from a box behind the bar. I'd have to be in the right mood, but it's a good inclusion in a crawl due to its beer quality if you don't mind a bit of noise.

Probably rather different in the evenings, but this music pub is pretty conventional during the day (albeit with a generally young customer base). Fairly plain furniture, and decor in the darker shades, but doing reasonable business with those eating in the early afternoon. Also has a decent little courtyard garden open during daylight hours. Three real ales on handpump: Doom Bar, Trigger from Musket Brewery (£3.70) and Long Man Long Blonde.

Situated at the Western end of the High Street, Lady Luck is a student friendly, two room, rock pub. The place was in full-on Halloween mode when we visited, with cobwebs and fake blood everywhere and loads of student types dressed up in their best scary costumes, apart from one who had seemingly misread the invite and turned up dressed as a banana. You enter into the front bar with the servery along the left hand wall and an open space opposite which was being used as a dancefloor on our late night visit. The rear room has a bit of seating and a pool table and leads out to a small courtyard at the back. Loud rock music was being played by the DJ throughout our stay and there is a rock and metal juke box to take over when he's off duty. Rock karaoke is also arranged on a regular basis and unsurprisingly there is a decent roster of live music acts each month. In keeping with the Halloween theme, a TV next to the bar was showing 'Dawn of the Dead' followed by the intriguingly titled 'Zombie Strippers'. Food is available during the day, with a student friendly menu centred around burgers and the like.
Two hand pumps were dispensing Sharp's Doom Bar and Skinners Betty Stogs. I gave the latter a try and thought it was in reasonable shape if not quite perfect. Stowford Press and Old Rosie ciders were also available alongside a standard keg range.
I quite liked the quirky feel of this place and whilst it has something of a niche appeal, I thought it was at least welcoming and didn't seem to take itself too seriously. A good place for the student population and worth a look if you fancy a go on that juke box.
