A subterranean room with no view of the outside world, so it's a "bring your own atmosphere" kind of place. The seats are rather crammed in, so getting to the bar can be slightly tricky, even when it's not particularly crowded. Once there, you're confronted by 15 handpumps, mostly devoted to ale, but a few for cider. The back wall offers a few craft taps as well. The barman was friendly enough and served up a decent pint. Worth a look-in.

Nice cellar bar selling multiple beers. Lots of chunky wood in the furniture and walls, modern aspects, some arm chairs

As noted below this is a cellar bar that Was previously Bogiez Rock Club. A curved staircase behind a glass door leads to the smallish room that has mixed furnishings. The ceiling has that unfinished look that seems to be the vogue. There were only a few in on my early Wednesday aftenoon visit.
Of the 15 hand pumps just two were unused with a varied assortment of beers. I went for the Hopcraft Pub Crawl Brawl (£3.70) which seemed rather run of the mill both in condition and taste and was quite disappointing.
I hope I was just unlucky with the beer this time as I would return. It's GBG 2019 listed.
