ROB Camra left this review about The Crafty Pig

Don't be put off by the outside of this bar, with loads of lowlifes hanging around the doorway and bus stop, it's rather better on the inside. It's all one room, but with 2 areas. The rear left has several booths that are used by diners. The front area is mainly standard dining tables and chairs. Interesting walls with lots of pig jokes on them. No real ale, but Meantime Pale craft keg did a decent enough job, although it was £2.15 for a half. I've been in a lot worse places than this, it's OK for a quick one.

This is now called The Crafty Pig. From what I saw its a cafe style layout with a bar to your left as you enter. No real to be found with only foreign keg beers on draught, these including Kozel, Estrella, Urquell, flibbybrau and flobbybeir. There was only 1 room that I saw.
