Head of Steam pubs are always fairly reliable and this one was no exception.

The only drawback was a queue to get in on Saturday evening. With only 5 people ahead of us in the queue, it was still a good 15-minute wait, despite around 20 people having left during that time.

We were seated at the table nearest the door, which had been free since the time we'd arrived! Nevertheless, the ale range here is as good as in other branches I've visited. Cameron's Sanctuary is the regular real ale. Guests were Vocation Bread & Butter, Shiny Moa & Halton Turner Whiplash. Snail's Bank Raspberry Ripple was the real cider.

Craft beers included Lervig House Party, Northern Monk Eternal, Halton Turner Beverly Hills Hop 2, Gweilo East & West Pale Ale, Deya Steady Rolling Man, Tooth & Claw Squeeze Please & Pilsner, Huyghe Delirium Red, La Chouffe Blonde, Vocation Sweet Temptation & Neon Raptor Abandoned Dragons.

The pub is split over 2 levels, with the bar itself on the upper level and the majority of seating spread around it. With plenty of food also being consumed, it is easy to see why this place is so popular. However, with this the last of the city centre pubs to complete the Good Beer Guide entries again, we moved on to further conquests.

Like going on holiday, without the hassle of travel.

Fine collection of Belgian Beers (including the large 75cl Chimay Blue bottles for just shy of £20) - far too many handpulls to record - not that I could get to them, due to the bar hangers. Both Chouffe and Deliriums on tap. No end of craft.

The Good Beer Guide describes it as "Cyperpunk" - so if you won't like it if you don't like exposed ducting. Or afternoon bouncers.

However, a world of experimentation awaits, so well worth throwing caution to the wing and see where a beer topped with a pink elephant will take you.

Another excellent Head Of Steam pub. Up a few steps and you get to the main part. Open plan with an island bar. 10 handpulls greet you as you enter plus several taps for crafty fizzpops on either side of the bar. Well worth a visit.
