Nice makeover of a Victorian Theatre Bar by the Bitter and Twisted Company.

Lovely decor inside and good ale - a well kept Salopian Golden Thread.

Worth seeking out.

An unmapped quick visit caused by a train detour and a half hour wait at New Street. Not a bad pick at all, a split level place with three distinct areas, the main room with the beer pumps has curved banquettes with the seats being leather, arched leaded windows with different stained glass inserts, the bar counter had a purple padded front. Drawings over the bar feature various Victorian contraptions, the décor in the rear room is rather more risqué with a French slant. An ornate ceiling has support from fluted columns and piers. Some of the old bell pushes remain on the seat backs.
The pub was heavily made up for Halloween which to me is a minus, but a sign of the times I suppose.
Three on with two unclipped, Hobgoblin Gold, Silhill Blonde Star and Birmingham Gold Brummie at a London wince inducing price of £4.40. Tables had cocktail and whisky menus.

Still as Pub signMan describes, quite dark inside, its what I would call a proper pub but there were a couple of negatives, the music was far too loud and the floor was one of the stickiest Iv'e ever encountered. The beer tried was Manchester Brewing Getting Caught in The Rain, which was exactly what happened upon leaving the establishment. A decent pub and worth another go.
