Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Spire Bar

Spectacular building, with a surprisingly small bar under the eponymous pinnacle and most of the seating out in the square. I managed to get one of the few indoor tables (mostly due to the bad weather, because I imagine that this place is normally full on a Friday evening). In addition to a few Dhillon's craft beers on the keg taps, two cask beers were available on gravity: Bright Eyes GPA (£4.50) and Red Rebel IPA.

Graham Coombs left this review about Spire Bar

One of the more bizarre drinking experiences. Apparently belonging to Dhillon's brewery, this is situated in the base of a former church spire, which just holds the bar counter and a couple of tables, but extends out to a batch of tables in the square outside. The atmosphere within was slightly amusing, with a peculiar ceramic fronted counter and a wall holding plastic foliage and some strange artwork, contrasting with the original church tower. It was certainly not helped by some specie of what I take to be 'drum 'n bass' music. The pointless 'one way system' on entry was not a good omen, and so it proved with a ludicrously complicated QR code ordering system, demanding everything from your birthsign to your inside leg measurement (ok, not quite). Finally gave up and persuaded the server to take payment. Beerwise, has tinned craft stuff from Dhillon's, plus their lager and a bit of other fizz on keg. Food is of the burgers/wings variety. Frankly a waste of time.
