Old Boots left this review about Bootleggers

This converted chapel looking and named like a nightclub, is actually a pub and with three hand pumps. It does have less pubby fittings and the grey plague, the upholstery on the benches and stools is black vinyl. For a small downstairs space there are a lot of screens, one huge one fixed to the gallery, yes there’s an upper gallery where the women and children would have worshiped, plus a small screen next it plus one each side of the bar back plus, well you get the idea. I went in at lunchtime and the music was at night time levels ie deafening, fortunately turned down by the older chap behind the bar as the punters were four old men. In such a place you might be worried about beer quality but calm down, it was fine, I had a Reedley Hollows beer but could have tried another smaller brewers wares or er Courage Directors and it was good.

A two floored hovel. Decorated in a hideous colour its basically a large shed. Has a pole for dancing round and this seemed popular with the flies. Real ales are available. Dire.

This pub is in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide 2015 for some unknown reason. It's been converted from a pentecostal church, but it's not a sympathetic conversion. One small room with an upstairs balcony, a pole dancing pole, and a massive TV screen. The clientele matched the small pedestrianised street that it's on, scruffy, smelly and in need of a good clean up. Three handpumps on the bar with two on. Copper Dragon Golden Pippin & Courage Directors. The Golden Pippin was just £2 a pint, which explains the clientele. It was also not a particularly well kept pint. Someone must have bribed the local CAMRA branch to get this dump in the GBG. It's awful.
