Bucking Fastard left this review about Never For Ever

A very stylish bar and diner,the exterior crittal framed windows are a real feature and add a lot to first impressions.There is a modest bar to the right,while oposite there is a pizza oven and large open kitchen ,food is a feature here but just popping in for a drink is fine.Dining type tables in the mid section,high tables near the bar,there is also a rear room with a red blaize pool table ,comfy chairs and sofas.
No real ale,wine is served from bar based keg type pumps while 7 craft keg taps sit modestly along the rear wall.Two house kegged beers plus guest beers,my Siren Sounwave IPA was decent but £3.30 the half it needed to be.Beware this is NOT a brewpub despite a painted wall sign pointing to a brewery.The soundtrack was jesus of cool ,as is the concept here.There is a vinyl deck and albums in a recess,while the basement bar looked a very hip place when it's open.
It does what it does very well,but not really a venue for hard drinking real ale types.Your partner may enjoy it more.

I found the staff to be pleasant and although the range of draught is very limited (Staropramen, Becks Vier, Leffe and Guinness) it is looked after and served well.

There was loud R&B playing during my visit and I'm not really a fan, but the DJ did slip in a little funky house which is more up my street. There is table football, but I didn't spot the pool tables that are hidden somewhere.

Being a Friday evening it was fairly busy, but I got the impression that a lot of the customers were standing around waiting for tables so they could sit in their little groups so there wasn't a great atmosphere.

This is an inoffensive bar with a mixed clientele, but I think that there are better in the area.
