There is all sorts going on in here, total sensory overload. The colour scheme involves purples, orange, salmon pink, grey, red and turquoise, even some purple tables with lime green chairs. Very mixed seating from the aforesaid to long benches at lightwood tables with of course the usual high tables, naturally in here the tables are two tone. Banquettes have scatter cushions. There is modern art on the walls, mainly in the upstairs gallery to the front, downstairs there is a pinboard covered in "Post-it" notes. The bar back has white herringbone tiling with the pub name emblazoned in huge lettering.
Despite all this, they do serve some beer, firstly you see a row of keg fonts, numbered 1-5, then three handpumps, this visit had Doom Bar, Old Rosie cider as before but also Robinson's Trooper. The Trooper was fine despite my trepidation as the clip indicated it had been reduced. Large menus dominate the tables, typical quick fix pub food and sharing platters, seemingly fried and oven baked stuff.
The pub itself is L-shaped, patio garden to the rear and a few benches to the front. I believe the place was once a cinema, it will have been a small one.
They do some unusual things, you can borrow a phone charger, (what a good idea), they will print for you....why would you need this? There is a virtual juke box whatever that might mean.
Although the beer was fine, and the cheaper price welcome, this place really isn't geared up for grumpy 50+ year olds who like traditional pubs. I'm sure it suits some down to the ground but it was all too much for me.

This is one of the parcel of pubs acquired by Stonegate from the Bramwell administrators. It has been refurbished and renamed from The Vestry though not into one of Stonegate's established brands. It's done out in a rather yoof oriented style, with a whole mishmash of furniture and garish colours towards the front, though it feels a little more staid as you progress further back. I think the theme is supposed to be American. The layout isn't significantly changed from the previous arrangement. I called on a Friday afternoon and the muzak was tolerable. I suspect it gets intolerably noisy later on.

They make a big thing about style and range of beer, though that is more in theory than reality. There are five 'craft' fonts dispensing amongst other things two keg versions of Thornbridge's mainstream cask brews at inflated prices - the thick end of a fiver for two thirds of a pint is pushing it - and just three hand pumps with, tediously, Pride, Doombar and Old Rosie cider. The whole lot is chalked up behind the bar for us to marvel at their adventurous range; and their adventurous prices. There is the usual Wifebeater and so on and that might be your best bet.

The menu majors on hamburgers. Tip: go to the MaccyD's across the road to eat first. It's a lot cheaper and the surroundings similar.

My guess is Stonegate are trialling a concept here, chasing well heeled twenty and thirty year olds who've grown out of Scream and are not quite ready for Slug and Lettuce.
