This is a post-war pub, built to replace an earlier pub on the site that fell prey to the Luftwaffe. It still has its original two rooms, connected by a short corridor that leads past the gents toilet, with a private bar sign to a small area behind the public bar which is now effectively subsumed by the public bar. There's no bar back to speak of; if there ever was one (and I would have expected there to have been one) it's now gone, so it's easy to see between the two rooms. There is a table football game in the public bar, which has a rough tiled floor. A bit of bench seating provides a small amount of outside inside some railings.

I didn't see any handpumps; both the pub's website and WhatPub say it does cask so ale, so maybe there was one that for some reason I didn't spot.

This is a very simple down to earth pub. It certainly doesn't go in for luxury. It's not really the sort of place that I would rush back to.

This pub dates back to at least the 19th century when it was called the Cricketers. Rebuilt as such in the 1950s and renamed when, I know not.
I always thought that this place was some sort of noted live music venue but if it was, then it clearly isn't now. This is a two-bar format pub with both bars dominated by full-sized pool tables, the one by the Inverness Street entrance so much so that on entering, you have to wait for the players to take their shot before you can get to the bar. This is a scruffy pub with flagstone floor, all complementing the rather scruffy crowd, not helped by the proximity to homeless hostel Arlington House across the road. Muted reggae played on the stereo but this didn't prevent the landlord from serving me with a pint rather than the requested half of Sharp's Original at £3.80 a pint; there were two unused pumps. It was majorly off, sour as Sarson's.
I endured about a third of it and then we left. Nope, I'm not returning.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Good Mixer

Basic corner pub at the western end of the Inverness Street market area. Two rough-and-ready bars; both with dominant pool tables, stone flooring and very limited furniture (although the left-hand room has a small, partially screened, seating area at the back). Loud music throughout. A few patio tables out front. Two handpumps - offering the regular Pride (£3.80) and Sharp's Special - in the right-hand room. Really only worth considering for a quick pre-gig pint.
