Rex Rattus left this review about Vernon Arms

I wasn't expecting much before I opened the door into this tatty looking boozer, but was very pleasantly surprised to see seven handpumps, all clipped. I went for a rum porter called Gitone Zarack’s (if I’ve read my notes correctly, which doesn’t always happen) from Stamp’s Brewery, at £1.60 a half.

A fairly ordinary and unpretentious bar faces you, and a bit of screening on the left suggests that there was once a snug in that corner. Furnishings are the traditional upholstered bench seating and normal tables and chairs. A shelf on the bar back sported a range of CAMRA awards; always a good sign. A doorway at the back on the left leads through an erstwhile entranceway to an area called the Latham Lounge, which is a bit more sumptuously furnished than the main bar.

This is the sort of down to earth locals’ boozer that I like. Seven real ales helps enormously as well.

one of my favourites on Dale Street, a real time warp of a pub. one of a dying breed. how do they do the food so cheap?

One of many good pubs in the city centre. Though its a bit tatty it does usually have a decent selection of real ale. As described by Mr Man below it is probably more comfortable in the back room. The mural with the Dead Kennedys joke is still here and a holiday in Cambodia for £49 would obviously be a bargain nowadays.
