ORIGINAL REVIEW Dec 2010.

Little to add to Roger B's accurate review,I enjoyed my visit to this pub which still retains the feel of it's previous incarnation as a "Ball's Brothers".Seven real ales available with Youngs Bitter and Nethergate Redcar Best as regulars and a changing array of guests,my Dark Star American IPA was on good form.Will definately use this place again as it does appear much less hectic than The Market Porter,but still provides a good range of ales.Food served including a Pie of the Day if you plan an extended stay.

UPDATE

Now has just three handpumped ales and both my Dark Star Hophead and Castle Rock Harvest Pale were in poor condition and quite tasteless.I couldn't be bothered to try the house Redcar Bitter.Dominted by flat screens ,this is good for televised sport but little else.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Sheaf

Housed under the former Hop Exchange building, this is brighter and more open than most basement bars, benefitting from a fairly restrained used of dark timber when compared with the likes of Davy's, etc. Tends to be busy, but not crowded, except at the height of the early evening rush. As always, a fine selection from the ten handpumps, including the tasty Shefford Plum Mild (£4.30) on this visit.

Basement bar with a characterful barrel vaulted interior. 10 real ales and "craft keg" served. 2 dartboards and live sport shown.
