A cellar bar that can be quite difficult to spot. Down a few steps and you enter into one large room. The walls are covered with posters for films and various pictures of actors etc. The ceiling has spaceship models hanging from it. There's a Dalek and a Cyberman and a K9 model. There's also a pinball machine which was Indiana Jones on my visit. Sadly there's no real ale no matter what WhatPub says, so I had a half of fizz and went to play on the pinball. It's getting a bit tatty in here now compared to 10 years ago when I used to work just down the road. I'll call in for a game of pinball again if I'm passing by.

Bit of a posy bar with a student feel to it. Minimalist décor with psychedelic murals and weird props including a Dalek, or so I'm told as I didn't see it. Rather pretentious door policy. It's probably mostly used for pre-club drinks.
