ROB Camra left this review about Bar Fringe

Called in here twice in the last month and sadly this place is on a steep downhill slope. The beer was average at best and I even left some and at rip off £4.50 per pint which is steep even for the city centre. Offhand and uninterested bar staff and I'm told that the Ladies were disgusting. Living on past glories, we won't be visiting here for a while.

Great bar on the N4 crawl. We always call in for one or two when in the Northern Quarter, which is regularly. Eclectic mix of regulars (and staff), lots of tattoos/piercings/bright hair dyes in evidence. It's often busy in here. Has huge rats & bats adorning the walls along with cartoons, it also has a full sized motorbike above the front lounge area. Has a sign over the ladies saying "Caution Moose Crossing". You get the idea, it's a really unusual place. Has 5 handpumps but often there are only 3 or 4 beers on, one of them is usually a Bank Top beer. It's always a decent pint in here. Loads of Belgian drafts and real cider as well. Give it a try, you may well like it.

I loved this quirky bar with its lively atmosphere and excellent jukebox. the beer almost doesn’t matter when the bar is as charming and affable as this but the Oakham Citra was good anyway. just go there, you cannot fail to have a good time!

An unassuming frontage gives way to quite quirky and interesting interior, It has a pubby feel and a good beer range as described by Bucking Fastard below. Well worthy of a visit.
