Visited on Saturday evening. Only two cask ales available (according to my friend who did the ordering) - Red Willow Breakfast Stout and Black Lodge Dizzy New Heights. The Dizzy New Heights was very pleasant, although two cask ales is a far cry from the seven claimed on WhatPub and the bar's own Facebook page - and from reading Al Bundy's review this does not appear to have been a one-off. As he has also mentioned, it is cash only here - which could catch people out who have become used to not having to carry cash over the last 18 months! Keg beers also available, though I didn't investigate as we were just staying for one.

Split over three floors, with the ground floor (where the bar is) being naturally busiest, the upper floor empty, and the basement level seeming to be the overflow area of choice. The basement is a bit dark and dingy, rustic perhaps, and is also home to the toilets.

Not as good as on my previous visit, and loses a point off my rating accordingly.

Think twice before you visit now. Has gone spectacularly downhill. Usually just one poor cask on and even if you like fizzpops there is usually only about 2 or 3 on. It's been like this for a good few weeks now, sadly. Cash only too.

Describing itself as a Dive Bar was,I felt,rather harsh.It's in a former shop unit but has been well put together with a series of circular tables,wooden display cabinets but kept locked with some distressed plaster work to the side.A high serving bar to the right was serving Top Rope Four Horsemen,Titanic Plum Porter,Fullers( Dark Star) Hophead,Atlas Bear Town and a very decent Five Towns Pale.There are more craft keg beers to boot.
Upstairs in The Green Room,while in the basement there is a parquet floored cellar room,and the whole pub has a bohemian feel.
If you arrive at Lime Street desperate for a decent pint,you won't go far wrong popping in here.Fully deserves it's GBG listing for the decent ale range and conditioning.
