still an unchanged, slightly tatty backstreet pub with a lot of character though limited comfort. Last time I was in here there was hardly any real ale available but this time round it was better, though there are far superior beer pubs in the city. Friendly and multiple rooms make it very characterful. Popular with student types.

My sixth heritage pub of the day, after a bit of a scare when it wasn't open at opening time. Returning half an hour later I found the landlady and three other customers, one of them at least clearly a regular. I suppose a pub whose name is The Cracke has got to have good "craic", and so it proved. The beer was in very good condition, though in my case it was only Marstons Saddle Tank, or Burton Bitter as it used to be called. Others were Beartown Creme Bearlee, Phoenix Arizona and a seasonal for the RU world cup. Reading my notes after two months I was initially puzzled as to what PdR could mean - and then I remembered: pièce de résistance. It's the panelled snug in the middle of the pub, cryptically labelled "War Office" (see photos), a tiny room with a mirror along one wall to make it seem larger and lighter than it really is. Anyone who's not been to the Cracke before should definitely come and see the War Office.

A very traditional looking back street boozer which was surprisingly busy for its location. It looked a bit daunting from the outside, the kind of place that may be a locals' pub and everyone falls into silence and stares at you when you walk in, but I'm pleased to report that was far from the case. On entering there is a small room to the left, backing on to the rear of the bar, which was empty, then you walk through and round to the front of the bar where there are a couple of different semi opened out rooms. There is also an outdoor area though not investigated and was in the process of being locked up - perhaps they are only allowed to use it until a certain time because it's a fairly residential area.

Four hand pulls at the bar including two from Big Bog at the time of my visit.

It's a proper old school boozer but without feeling exclusively locally. Well worth a visit.
