Ale Monster left this review about Longbar

This is a one room back alley locals pub that has a narrow gable end frontage with Georgian style ashlar blocks and huge sash windows on the first floor. The interior ironically has a not so long bar counter (compared to some I have seen) with an unusual burgundy fabric covered front in the middle of the right wall, a brick fire place in the left wall with a cast iron coal stove, a pool table at the rear of the room and a dart board on the right wall also at the back. Around the perimeter of the room are fixed burgundy fabric bench seats and at the front of the room are three large round tables made from massive wooden barrels which have been cut down to form a large base, the entire floor is rather smart parquet. I spotted a couple of small flat screen TV’s more suited to individual viewing rather than for mass sporting events. The bus terminus and a public car park are right next to the pub but it does not appear to have any parking of its own.

Ales on during this visit were Green King IPA and Bays Topsail. I had a pint of the Topsail which was in good condition in my opinion.

A local drinker’s pub with around half a dozen people in during my early evening visit. First impressions were that the exterior looked a bit grubby and not very inviting but I felt quite comfortable here once I sat down with a decent pint. The décor is fairly traditional and I can’t imagine it does much (if any) food which suits me, the place reminded me a little of an old working men’s club. I would pop in for one if in the area again.
