A nice looking pub. A thin bar with 9 taps for fizz and 2 handpulls, which were unfortunately unclipped. It's an ok place and I'm glad I visited, however I doubt I'll ever be back while it is as it is.

Called in on Saturday and had no problem with the bar, which has been well described. The background music was fine too. I chose 2 half pints of beer from the font range Tiny Rebel Dutty 4.2% and Alphabet Brewing Company Juice Springsteen 4.5% both of which had £4 showing against them on the board. I was charged £6 so queried it. They don't serve pints and the price on the board is for 2/3. Lesson has been learned. The beer was too cold to have any flavour, but was not too bad after it had been stood a while.

A stunning looking pub, especially of an evening when the place is illuminated. You really get to see the amount of individual panes of glass, framed against the ornate exterior timber work.
We thought the staff on our visit were very friendly and chatty, who seemed to take great interest in the pub. The interior is shabby chic with mint painted walls, some wallpapered walls and undressed brick. The bar counter had a steel trim with timber inlay, which I haven't see before. Eight craft beers on key keg and two handpulls, serving Sharps Atlantic and Tiny Rebel Marshmallow porter. I went for the Vocation Heart and Soul IPA, which was excellent.
