Rob Hunter left this review about Bacchus Bar

This one took a bit of finding from street level but persistence paid off. There were five real ales on the hand pulls, St Austell Summer Anthem, Hop Back Summer Lightning, Purity Ubu, Nicholson's Pale Ale and something else I neglected to note. This is a dark dimly lit place with no natural light, definitely an interesting experience with lots of different seating areas to break up the space.

My Summer Anthem was either £2.30 or £2.40 for a half, so a bit on the pricey side, but was otherwise OK.

There is a second bar not in use at the time of my visit yesterday (Wednesday) afternoon, immediately to the left of the main bar. I don't think all the hand pulls were clipped but those that were had duplicates of those on the main bar.

One of the most bizarre pubs I've ever been in. The descriptions are elsewhere but this pub is a must. Nicholson's are having a beer festival at this visit and while half of the beers in here were duplicated in The Shakespeare around the corner there was still a good selection. I had my drink in the Egyptian room.

This is a Nicholson's bar worthy of a visit just yo wander round and see all the features and decor round the place. It was very busy when we went, but we did get seats but beer choice seemed limited with only 3 ales on, repeated in the other bar. No problem with the Siren Craft beer, Here Comes Johnny though.
