This is one of their better cinema conversions as inside it's clearly recognisable as one. It's very much a Lloyds with the branding still on the outside and I spotted a notice on the way in declaring a dress code and admission fee of £2.00 after 22:00 on Friday and Saturday. There's an island bar and an unused smaller keg only one where the screen once was with an idiot booth to the right of it. The old cinema circle just seems to be used for attaching speakers and lights.
The bar has five hand pumps at the front and five at the rear. The front five had one unused, Stockport Summertime, Peerless Red Rocks, Titanic White Star and Abbot while the rear five had Moorhouse Blond Witch, Ruddles and three festival ciders which were in the chill cabinet. I went for a Thistly Cross festival cider which went down a treat with a breakfast.
During daytime this one seemed reasonably OK for a Lloyds.

It is a decent Wetherspoons with 2 bars on ground level though as it was an afternoon only one was on. Service was pretty quick but only after the barman had twirled the glasses around a few times and started blathering on to a couple of Dearie's about the wine selection. A quick reminder that he was supposed to be serving me got him moving.

Called in again after the beer festival. 2 deep at the bar again, only one guest on. Pathetic again.

Called in yesterday after the Bury Beer Festival. Lots of people waiting to be served, only 2 serving on the bar. A large range of handpumps, most with clips turned round, so only 2 beers available. Pathetic given that there is a beer festival going on just up the road.

Originally a cinema not surprisingly called "The Art Picture House". It was converted into a Chicago Rock cafe and JDW have done a good job in restoring the internal character of the place. As you walk in the bar is directly in front of you which is badly designed as everyone stops immediately inside the door which means the front is crowded and the rear is empty. It's very impressive inside with all the old cinema memorabilia. The service was typical JDW though, slow, with the staff having no idea who was next. The beers we had were well kept though. I'm sure we'll call in again next time we're in Bury.
