Well-placed pub opposite the station and fully on trend in the current 'social club' theme (don't worry, definitely a pub not a club). The surprisingly large interior has a sort of laid-back warehouse feel. with a well-stocked bar to one side and a separate kitchen counter. Changing ales available - the sampled Old Hookey was in fine form - and Cask Marque certified. As warned below, the prices are somewhat eye-watering however. Various entertainments provided; at time of visit there appeared to be a 1940's American dance class under way. Certainly not a traditional pub but it felt quite pleasant.

Has had a refurb and looks a bit better than it did. Still three ales on (Doom Bar as a staple) and prices have sailed through the £4 barrier - fools and their money I suppose.

May 2013
A decent attempt at creating an upmarket young(er) drinkers venue from the old Flyer and Firkin/Forum. Or ‘achingly trendy venue’, depending on your viewpoint. The décor is a mixture of mood lighting and leather sofas. A number of music and entertainment evenings get the punters in regularly. Some interesting foreign lagers and Aspall’s Cyder are on tap. The ale selection and quality have periods of ascendency and descendency; when it’s good it’s very good though. Either way one constant is that they often run out during gigs without any effort at replacement.
