Not quite as big as The Warehouse round the corner but another large single room with plenty of space for vertical drinking for the weekend rush. Made to look a bit scruffy with "keg" sawdust on the floor and given a rather rustic look. A bit more of a mixed age group than its near neighbours, probably due to the large number of TV screens in every part of the room showing Premiership football.

I agree with Mr Great below that this is indeed a strange place. If its going for the 'shed' look its got it totally wrong as it does indeed resemble a wild west saloon. It has a load of crap that you may find in an old shed; bits of machinery, rusty garden tools and assorted rubbish but your first impression is saloon bar more than garden/allotment shed. Anyway there are 4 handpumps on the bar with 3 for real, including their own 'Albert's Shed' beer by whoever, and one cider pump. I was not overly impressed and there are much better places in the town.

Quite a change here , the post industrial look of the vodka bar has gone replaced with lots and lots of roughly sawn wood almost Wild West in feel .
It is one large room divided in two , to the left there is seating in alcoves and a huge oversize chair for Selfies ! a stage for live music is at the far end , the dividing wall has some large cages filled with various bits of memorabilia and some bicycle parts , there are some shelves for resting drinks on with some metal stools complete with pedals and chainsets .... very strange .
The long brick bar is down the right with two long T Bars with lots of keg taps and in the middle four handpulls , the barrels are visible through a glass panel under the pulls . Beers on were Doombar , Alberts Ale and a decent Salopian Lemon Dream , the other pull was Orchard Pig Cider .
A mixture of customers , from old timers to young families although the age range was getting younger towards the end of my visit .
Its a strange one this , i quiet enjoyed my half hour here although i suspect later in the evening it will be a youngsters bar.
