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.

Split level Gothic themed pub with dingy interior and loud scary rock music playing most of the time. This is a very popular place and does attract a good amount of mainstream drinkers as well as rocker types. This is a very old school type of no thrills city drinking pub with no fancy glassware as all beers are served in old school nonick pint glasses even the fancy pants larger like Estrella, a touch I quite like.

On the lower bar on victoria street side there are three and pumps at the fron with two on the right side as you face. On my visit there was Hobgolbin (a permanent beer) turned around and Springhead blind Tiger, Flipside Frank en Stein adn Roosters buck eye. The buck eye (£3.20) was on the turn with an unmistakable tint of vinegar creeping inn but was still palatable if you are not type to complain, fortunately I have no such problems and sent it back. The classic charade of its fine ensued until he realised i would nit back down and it was replaced for a ok blind tiger. I dont understand why bar staff get so defensive of their beers when returned firstly why would people return a fine beer? and secondly it just infuriates customers and is really bad customer service that makes return visits less likely.

I've now been and wont be in any hurry to return but wont completely rule it out if ever with a group who decide visit but unlikely of my own accord.
