Al Bundy left this review about Cherry Reds

A small cafe bar. A single room with a big fat pillar plonked in the middle. 2 handpulls with beers from Kinver and Salopian on today. It seemed to be quite studenty to me. Also a bar upstairs which can be reached by a rather precarious flight of stairs. Its not a bad place and there are crafty beers for those so inclined. Pavement seating out front.

Small corner-bar-cum-patisserie. Not much in the way of seating and the large, awkward central pillar didn't help matters. However there’s further seating upstairs, a divided room with views overlooking the street and a bit more atmosphere. Fairly plain walls downstairs with the aforementioned pillar wallpapered in a 70’s-pastiche style. Three ales, Tyne Bank Dunkelweisen (too warm, put me off), Backyard Treason (who they?) and a German themed beer from Hand Drawn Monkey, served up by a brusque barmaid. Also a decent selection of craft kegs and bottles. Found the voguish clientèle and their facile conversations fairly irritating "Breaking Bad like OMG, Game of Thrones OMG like OMG yeah so amazing”, ad infinitum. It’s a bit different in here and fair play to them, but one visit was enough for me.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Cherry Red's Cafe Bar

Really does look like a café, with large windows and light primrose colour scheme. Even though it does discretely advertise beer and wine as being sold along with the cakes and coffee, it is really quite a surprise to find a traditional (if very compact) bar counter at the back. Initially appears to offer limited seating with a mix of furniture, but there are also two further rooms and smaller bar (not in use) upstairs. Three real ales on handpump: the regular Backyard Blonde (£3.40) plus Otter Ale and Revisionist (Marstons) Hefeweizen as guests. Relaxing atmosphere.
