Now with 10 hand pumps on the bar: six Stancill beers plus four guests. I went for the Porter 4.4%, which is more like a strong, dark bitter than a typical porter. It was in very good condition and only £2.50 per pint. It's good to see that Stancill are still taking guest beers, unlike the Thornbridge pub across the road. Maybe I'll have to start coming here more often.

Following a refurbishment under a new owner, the Closed Shop has a revitalised feel to it, though not a lot has actually changed. There's still a pool table in the raised back room, the bar still has that awkward raised area to the left, and there are still eight hand pumps arrayed along the bar. The quality is definitely better, though, and on my two recent evening visits the place has been busier than I've known it.

Beers available on my latest visit were two from Blue Bee, one from Kelham Island, the ubiquitous Sharps Doom Bar, Camerons Strongarm, Dark Star Espresso and Wharfebank Ophelia Gold. There were also four real ciders in boxed polypins. I had the Espresso Stout, which was good, and the Strongarm, which was less good, so I still think they may be stocking more beers than they can sell while they're in good condition, and my new rating is consequently a 6 rather than a 7.

There was quite a trade in food going on too, with one of the day's specials marked as sold out on the blackboard. It transpired that part of the reason for being so busy was a quiz, despite the A-board outside saying that quizzes are on Sundays and this being a Wednesday. There's a mixed client base, with a lot of apparent students (including the bar staff, most of whom I'd have asked for ID if I'd been at work) but also quite a few of less youthful appearance. This is a good alternative now to Thornbridge brewery's Hallamshire House across the road, where the concept of guest beers is an alien one.
