Rex Rattus left this review about Lord Cardigan

No real ale and no sign of any food when I popped in here on Wednesday afternoon. There were keg fonts for Tetleys and Bombardier, but both had little plastic bags over them leaving John Smith's (£1.60 a half) as the only choice other than bogstandard lagers.

There's a grubby carpet on the floor, a small stage on the right that had a dog's basket and water bowl on it, and furnishings were very ordinary standard tables, chairs and small stools. The tables were pushed against the walls with the chairs trapped behind them, suggesting that no customers were expected to come in and use them. There was one other customer in, plus off duty staff or family members occupying another table doing paperwork or some such. I sat on a stool by one of the tables as I didn't expect to be staying long enough to warrant the effort of moving the table out to get at one of the chairs. There's no decor worth mentioning.

Everything about the pub interior appears decrepit and in need of some urgent TLC, or perhaps some money spent on it. What a shame that such a magnificent old pub like this has been allowed to go to rack and ruin. I fear for its future. But maybe it's a better place in the evenings - I certainly hope so.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Lord Cardigan

Side street locals boozer, with an 'U'-shaped bar that might once have looked something but certainly not now. Basic furniture and decor, with just a couple of TVs and a dartboard in the way of features, and some living banter between the almost totally older male clientele. No real ale, so had a quick pint of keg Bombardier (on offer at £2.80, and - slightly surprisingly - served in the right glass) before moving on.

The Lord Cardigan is a decent looking back street corner pub.
Once inside there was a single room with the bar facing,there was a darts board to the rear left,and a piano on a small raised area to the front right,the room was carpeted and had leather type chairs andd small stools.
There were no real ales on the bar,i had a drink of keg Courage Best which was drinkable,the other beer was John Smiths smooth crap.
The pub was fairly busy with locals,there was some really good background music playing which was right up my street (Gangsters Paradise and Torn were the ones in could remember).
I quite enjoyed my short stay in this pub.
