A pretty idiosyncratic place! Red and bright green colour scheme. Glitzy tables (see pics), cinema seats, art on the walls for sale – sounds potentially awful but has been done in a genuine enough way as to not feel contrived. Looks like the original long bar (as you enter) has been extended as the old wall and windows remain, presumably taking in a horseway to some former stables? Some salvaged bits of normality included an Art Deco stained glass bar gantry and tiled divider. Six pumps all on, mainly local micro brews - my Wellbeck Abbey Henrietta was a very nice drop. Inevitably draws the alt crowd, with the Rock soundtrack permeating and live music advertised. I couldn’t quite settle on my opinion of the place, but its leftfield feel and range of good quality ales means it should be sampled when crawling Lincoln. 7.5

This is a terraced pub and live music venue, with a large beer patio area, part of which was being used as a stage area at my visit. The pub looks Victorian, with the upper stories in white render with green window sills and lintels. The ground frontage is in green, with a large window and an old horse passageway to the back.

The interior is an open plan room, split strangely to former a narrow area on the one side. The main room has the long serving bar to the left on entry. It is in light green and bright red, with a dark green ceiling and a wood floor. There is a brick fireplace, lots of art deco glass, strange art (some for sale) and a full wall picture of a lady. I didn't see a TV, the music was 80s at our visit and at a decent level. There is a dart board, an old video game and a table footy game. The Service was fine and the clietele is really mixed - at it was very busy!

Beer; usual tap stuff with Newby Wyke Roundel, Tom Wood's Bomber County, Dixie Marine's Red Rock, Brewster's Imp Athlete and Caythorpe Dark Gem MILD - I tried all and they were well kept.

A really good place. You cannot stop here for one. As the CAMRA says, a real cosmopolitan place.
