Blackthorn _ left this review about Fleece & Firkin

I'm not sure this really qualifies as a pub, but it's on here so I'll review it. It's more of a music venue, and as such you will have to pay to get in on many nights.
Over the years they've hosted many bands that have gone on to become famous, eg; Status Quo, Oasis, Amy Winehouse, The Killers, Muse, etc. Posters from these gigs are proudly displayed behind the bar. These days it mostly seems to be tribute acts, although many of these are very good.
It's a single large open room, with a very high ceiling. It's like being in some old warehouse, which is probably what it was at one time. There's very limited seating, just a few tables at the back which soon go. There's a bar running the whole length of one wall although even so it can be difficult to get served when they're busy.
Beer range is a bit dissapointing, with just Butcombe and Worthington Creamflow (whatever that is). Also Blackthorn cider.
