Rebranded Yates's pub and virtually identical to all the other 'Crafty...' rebrands. As noted its a Wethers wannabe but without the beer choice. Ales available were as below. Basically its a large open plan meeting place pub and then a buggering off from pub.

seems to be the pub of choice for local uni students that don't like pubs. a busy, popular place - gave it another chance today but just as rubbish as I remember, a massive former-Yates disco pub. food menu similar to Wetherspoons but the beer nowhere near as good, Hobgoblin and Doom Bar plus two Brew Dogs on tap.

Renamed The Crafty Scholar about a couple of years ago. Large open plan room with bar to right. Four hand pumps one not in use, rest weak real ale. Halfway decent craft ales on offer.
