The Stag & Hounds is a decent looking pub that is situated at the start or end of Old Market Street.
Once inside there is a long oblong shaped room which runs to the rear,the bar is on the left side,the front area is carpeted and there is a small stage to the front left where there was a live group playing,the rear area is up two steps,the floor here is stone tiled and the seating normal tables and chairs.
There were three real ales on the bar,i had a drink of Taylor Boltmaker which went down well,the other beers were Purity Mad Goose and Robinsoons Wizard.
I was quite happy having a drink in this pub while listening to a live group play.

I didn't find this pub in its usual guise as there was something called Stagfest taking place with a stage set for bands and happily a beer festival on the go with around 20 ales served on the upper outdoor terrace. All the seating had been removed from the front stage area, leaving a space at the back through an arch the only place to sit. It is all rather bohemian and studenty in here with black ceilings, bright green walls, stripped wood beams and picture rails. A stag's head is mounted over a fireplace. It is all really rather tatty and could do with a spruce up but given the clientele the pub seems to be pitched at it may be intentional.
Three handpumps were on the bar however not in use during the beer festival so I remain in the dark as to what is normally served.
Having the festival on was a bonus and made the visit worthwhile, I doubt it would be all that great an experience on a regular day.

Another pub that has been shut for a while, but now re-opened. Hopefully it will have better luck this time, although it was quite quiet on a recent Thursday evening visit. It’s a few years since I’ve been in here so I’m unsure how much has changed, but it doesn’t obviously appear to have been refurbished.

Inside it’s one long open room, although wood partitioning does break up the space somewhat to give the feel of different bars. The colour scheme is somewhat gloomy with dark green paint on the walls and black paint on the ceiling. A single matching green sofa was in front the large fire-place, other than that the furniture was mostly conventional tables and chairs. There was also some wood cladding on the wall at the far end, and a couple of stuffed animal heads (a stag and a fox, appropriately) on the wall. A raised area in one corner looked as though it got used by bands on occasions as there was some equipment dotted around.

There is a small roof terrace which is an unusual feature, and I imagine this would be a bit of a sun trap. No views unfortunately though, other than a small railing through which you can see the Temple Way roundabout! There is also an open mic night on Tuesdays.

Beers on offer were Doom Bar and Black Sheep, both of which were reasonably priced at £2.80. Ciders were Addlestones, Magners and Thatcher’s Gold.
