Still not great, but much improved since our last visit. It was easy to get served on a Sunday, early evening and there were a couple of guest beers available. We went and sat in the upstairs area which was quite peaceful.

Square Box would be a better name than Square Sail. It’s a pretty featureless Lloyds No1 on Brayford Wharf so it’s full of people going to the cinema next door. There are about 8 handpumps, when we called most of these still had festival ales on, even though the festival finished almost 2 weeks previously. They were selling these at £1.09 a pint, they might have been a bargain or the beer might have been well past it’s sell by date. Who knows? We couldn’t get any as it was full of shoppers and child buggies and they only had 2 staff serving. Not good on this visit, but I have been in on a previous visit when it was OK.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Square Sail (Lloyds No1)

Rather characterless Lloyds No 1 Bar in the Brayford Pool entertainment complex, with a mezzanine at the front but just cavernous at the back. Modern furniture and decor. Five real ales from the two banks of three handpumps, but at least the Ruddle's and Abbot were supplemented by Milestone Loxley Ale, Elgood's Hickathrift and Daleside Santa's Progress (£1.15, half).

This is a Lloyds No. 1 that overlooks a lake and is part of a new Odeon complex that I assume was built in 2006 when this one opened.
Obviously it's modern and is a large high ceilinged room and has exposed ventilation ducts. I didn't investigate upstairs. The lighting rig and glitter ball hanging from the ceiling at the far end provide a clue to the nightmare that it transforms into after 21:00. On my midday visit it seemed to have mostly people in to eat.
The bar only has six hand pumps which on my visit had the two GK beers, Doom Bore and three festival ales from a week ago. I went for the Oakham Owl and Pussycat (£2.25) which was in very good nick. It's OK for a Lloyds but the Ritz is a much better option.
