Enjoyed our visit to this 2019 Good Beer Guide pub in July. Chose Salopian Professor Hicks from the ales available and it was fine.

Much as previously described it’s a large back street corner pub in neatly executed Victorian if more than a little pretentious, yes it’s the painted renaissance ceilings at one end and the antler light fittings that can’t hide in the corner. Ok a bit of fun and no one gets hurt, not even good taste (too much). Half a dozen pulls of reasonably decent beer plus wide national keg choice. Comfy leather bench seating and wooden chairs and tables, plus a few copper topped ones. Spoonsy style menu although more pizza based as they’ve got an oven. Plenty of screens (all off on a Saturday afternoon visit) and machines for aficionado of them. No wacky technology on my visit, ordered pint, got pint, paid cash, got change, drank pint.

First visit earlier this week. Six pumps at the bar including Chocolate Stay Puft by Tiny Rebel, which was very tempting but I'd had it elsewhere recently so decided to go for something else. This happened to be Lemon Dream by Salopian. I ordered a half but was told it would be 2/3 pint and was asked if this would be OK. Price was £2.40. I have no issue with places offering 1/3 and 2/3 in addition to 1/2 and full pints, but there seems to be a current trend in some places to only serve by the 2/3 pint, which I find a bit odd. I daresay I could have had a pint, I didn't ask, but a half was apparently out of the question. In terms of the beer itself, I have had this before at another pub (some months ago) and the lemon was quite subtle, but on this occasion appeared to be pretty lacking and was a bit of a disappointment. At the bar I was prompted to press a button to try and win a discount on my drink - a screen flashes between half price, full price, etc, and you have to try and catch press the button in time with it landing on a discounted option. Sadly I ended up on the full price, but it is a nice novelty and I am sure I overheard a gentleman saying he'd got a discount through it so it must actually land on the discount sometimes!

The pub itself had dark décor and dim lighting but not too dark and gloomy. It was nice to have tried this pub, but not sure if I would rush back.
