Reading the previous reviews I had to pop in, yup it’s an upmarket Goth pub, plenty of Hammer Horror stuff here (sadly no Ingrid Pitt as barmaid). More dragons, gargoyles, twisty bits of wood and gothic windows (back room only) than you can shake a stick at. There's plenty of plastic stone arches and all that, lots of dark paint but not the black of death or even black as priest’s socks in spite of them trying. Lovely bits of old pubs and other Victorian places have been incorporated. It has a pendulum and a pit if you count the downstairs bar. The street level floor has four pulls of fairly mundane beers plus the usual old kegs, the rear bit has just the kegs.

not been in here for years and I don't think it has changed much. One thing of note is that is strictly over 18 only due to the 18+ certificate videos being shown. I tried to get a drink with my 15 year old niece in tow and was refused service.

As Al says, mental at the weekend and lots of better places to quaff a decent brew, unless of course you have jet black hair, piercings and a girlfriend that looks like morticia Adams.

A terrifying pub. Lots of frightening death metal nonsense emitting from the speakers. The place seems to be on 3 levels with the bar split into 2. The handpumps are on the lower bar and if you come in from the scary part and make it to the bar without sad Gothic/Buffy/soft c**t from Black Sabbath look-a-likes trying to scare you its actually not a bad pub. I'd hate to be in this place on a weekend though.
