Komakino . left this review about Bar 85

As the late, great Alan mentions below, this is more sports bar than pub, and has framed sporting photos on the walls and some other paraphernalia including a signed cricket bat, signed Manny Pacquiao t-shirt and Roberto Duran display as well as a glass-fronted trophy cabinet heaving with sporting cups, trophies and shields. A solitary ale (which surprised me) - Nethergate Suffolk County - with a second stump unclipped: an average pint for £3.20. A smattering of customers in on a Sunday arvo, with a PL game on a wall-mounted flatscreen providing occasional glances to those in attendance. Like Al, I was happy enough having a pint in here, but if I were to return to Hitchin, I'd give this one a miss.

Bar 85 is a short walk from The Victoria.
This pub looked more like a club from the outside,but it is a proper pub.
Once inside the bar faces in a single L shaped room,there are tall tables and chairs near the bar and bench seating and chairs to the front left,there is a darts board and pool table to the rear left.
There was one real ale on the bar which was Thwaites Lancaster Bomber,this was a decent enough drink.
The pub was fairly busy on my late Saturday afternoon visit.
Probably not a pub most would do,but i was happy enough having a drink here.
