A huge JDW, previously a cinema, well described below Ales on were Ghost Ship, Doombar, Rye Mild, GK IPA, Trade Winds, Dark Side of the Moose, Wolf Brewery's Howler, Blindman's Mine Beer and Little Beer Corporation's Little Haka. There were some boxed ciders on as well, though I couldn't see how many. There was also the usual unlimited supply of coffee, but it isn't in the same league as Horton's so we stuck to the alcoholic drinks. The clientele were a comprehensively mixed bag ranging from students dressed up for a masquerade ball, through a bunch of drunk football fans, via a few Cambridge intellectuals to a rather inebriated wannabe soldier, still wearing a crumpled Poppy, who amused the bouncers while waiting for his taxi. The Stygian atmosphere made the range of beer in this final venue of our town crawl feel like an allowance, not a target, while it felt strange drinking ale in a pub whose name is an anagram of 'lager'.

Cavernous former cinema, very dark and dingy, split level on the ground floor presumably where the sloping area has been levelled, upper mezzanine, assume the once circle, there is another bar here untended on my visit. I had some collaboration Maori brew here, it was ok. Not sure what it is about some 'spoons where the punters form a queue in a line, have these people never been in a pub before? Naturally I ignored this arrangement. Decent if standard breakfast.

Real Ale Ray left this review about The Regal (Lloyds No 1 Bar)

This was our first port of call, after a lengthy walk from the station. The pub has 12 handpumps, which included the usual suspects and three guest. So we went for the Banks & Taylor Dragon Slayer. Certain areas around the pub are quite poorly lit, maybe this is to add some nostalgia to this former cinema.
