Rob Hunter left this review about Big Hands

Called in here on a Saturday evening in mid December. However it was too crowded to be comfortable, there was no cask ale and no keg stuff standing out. There may have been something interesting bottled in the fridge but we stood no chance of being able to investigate properly through the crowds at the bar. We upped and left, so no rating on this one from me as we were only in for a couple of minutes.

Next door to where I have the best, and messiest, kebabs, Abdul's. The pub however is a bit rubbish. As its also next door to the Academy its is very music centred. Didn't see any Sonic Youth or Half Man Half Biscuit posters though. Which is a shame. As noted no real ale. Had a load of pizzas on the bar instead.

The small frontage of this bar is deceptive as it goes back quite a way and has 2 storeys. The roof terrace would have been nice if a heavy shower hadn't made everything wet through. Music posters all over the walls and an eclectic range of furniture throughout the bar. They have live music in here and they also have a good jukebox. There's no real ale sadly and a half of Tuborg was a rip off £2. I quite liked it in here apart from the lack of ale and the OTT prices.
