Quinno _ left this review about Hand in Glove

Back again to this trendy bar, though not by my personal choice. Three pumps with two ales and a cider. Wye Valley HPA and Lakesider(?), the latter of which tasted distinctly odd. Sat in the upstairs room, which is dark and dingy (others may say ‘atmospheric’). Re-reading my previous review I see I found an odd taste in the Wye Valley last time, so it’s fair to say I don’t get on with this place. I suspect this visit might be my last.

April 2014
Housed in a workaday 60’s building, the interior has been done out in a trendy bar style - in fact perhaps a little reminiscent of the Firefly at the other end of town as this place was lit in a similar fashion. An upstairs room done in a comfortable retro lounge style was surprisingly empty. Seemed to have a cocktail emphasis though there was a welcome sighting of three pumps, two of which were operational with Wye Valley and Dark Star APA on. I had a half of the APA and there was something not quite right about it, lacking the fresh clean crispness I know it usually has. Still, I’d be tempted to look in again at some point. Never did spot any Smiths references inside... Rated 6

Quinno kindly guided the remaining PG stragglers to this pub, Dave, Tammy, Mrs A and myself. I quite liked this pub as it was quirky and there was also a Dark Star American Pale on handpump. The pub was trendy, but not OTT, the upstairs lounge was very comfortable looking, with settees and standing lamps in various patterns and colours. Would defo make a revisit.

Called in yesterday and the décor doesn't seem much different from the description below. Lots of cocktail shakers round the side of the bar with menus so they must be popular here. Music was a little loud for us. 3 handpulls, and we chose an old favourite, Thornbridge Jaipur.
