A small basement bar, packed to the point of being uncomfortable on a Friday evening.With five handpumps for ale, there is a Locale policy here,I chose Rammy Craft Titch which was fine, I can see this is a decent bar but really was too busy to fully appreciate on my visit.

Real Ale Ray left this review about The Brink

Didn't last too long in here as the place was mobbed on our Friday Eve visit, so noise levels and logistics were quite overbearing. In spite of it being busy, the service at the bar was incredibly fast and efficient. Five ales on handpump, so we went for the Brightside B-Side, which was good. The main feature in here was the logo, the Bumble Bee, which was depicted all around the walls when entering the descending stairwell to the bar and lounge area.

Even busier on Friday afterwork and much smaller than Gaslamp over the road,this cellar bar is a bit claustrophobic and noisy but does have the advantage of great Locale real ale.There is long bench seating on both sides and a drinking shelf at the rear with 5 handpumps offering on my trip Brightside B side,Rammy Craft Titch,Mallinson's DOH 5.0 and Marble Uppe Hela Natten stout (top quality).
If crowds bother you,choose a quiet time .It's a lively spot and more attractive than Gaslamp and I would call in again.Include both bars on any real ale crawl .
