Rex Rattus left this review about The Schoolhouse

This is another bar that I've walked past on many occasions en route to the Beehive, and on a whim decided to pay it a visit. There's no real ale of course, and what I assume must be "craft" beers on tap are listed on a board at the end of the counter; ABV and price are listed, but not the quantity. Something called Big Wave was listed at £6.60, and my half of it was £3.60. I didn't see a menu (I was in at early doors just after 4.0 PM) but they obviously do food as there was cutlery on all the tables. I also saw a sign advertising 'bottomless bubbles', but luckily seemingly not in operation when I visited.

I suppose it's a bit school themed, as a bit of a play area at the back has giant dice and Rubik cubes, plus board games for customers' use. Furnishings are very basic, being being cheap looking chairs, tables and stools, and a board on the right hand wall had photos of punters enjoying themselves. There was a life-size photo of Elvis on this wall as well. The bar is split in two, both seemingly having their own exits to to the street, but I didn't see the left hand side as it was closed off during my visit, and anyway the bar counter was in the right hand side.

If you are happy to pay through the nose for craft beer then this bar will suit you fine.

Steve C left this review about Knights of St John

Knights of St John has the feel of a restaurant, but there is a bar in the back right corner where Aspalls cider, Budweiser, San Miguel and Peroni are available on draught. There is an extensive cocktail menu and the bar was strewn with various fruits that make up the concoctions. Seating is found throughout the wooden floored interior and the walls are painted brown and green. I deduced that this venue was once two shops that have been knocked through into one.
My visit was on Friday evening when there was one group of woman who looked as though they were on a work do. Thursday evening is £5 Martini night, which I think sums this place up perfectly.

This may be a good establishment for some gastro dining or maybe a girls night out, but I saw nothing here to interest me.
