Blackthorn _ left this review about Walcot House

Although this opened around Christmas time in a large building in Walcot Street, I was initially unsure whether to add it as I wasn’t really sure if it qualified as a pub or not. They advertise themselves as a bar and club but having now visited and found that there is no restriction on entry and they do have a small range of drinks on tap, I have now added it.

The street level entrance takes you down a flight of stairs to a small hallway with bars off to either side. The bar to the left was apparently “not open yet” when we visited and on leaving saw a Flamenco dancer giving either a demonstration or lesson to a group, so perhaps this is used for private hire. On entering the bar to the right, you find yourselves in quite a long room running front to back with a large wood panelled bar counter in front of you. The flooring is dark laminate boards whilst the walls are a mixture of exposed stonework and dark green wood panelling. Further exposed stone arches were visible along the far wall and the end one had been turned in to a small snug area. The ceiling was painted black although all the exposed air conditioning ducting perhaps detracted somewhat from the elegant feel elsewhere. Lighting was a number of low hanging globed lights that got progressively dimmer whilst we were there. At the rear, beyond some heavy drape curtains, was another large room and further bar counter. This is on occasions used for live music I believe, and the central seating area which was down a few steps created something of the feel of an auditorium. On this occasion though the Six Nations was being screened, although I thought it rather a shame that the commentary for this was piped around the rest of the pub making it difficult to avoid if rugby is not your thing.

Unfortunately there were no ales on tap, real or otherwise, with the only draught offerings being a couple of premium lagers and the rather good Orchard Thieves cider, which you don’t see too often around these parts. Overall, a pretty decent new venture, but it’s obviously not going to appeal to the beer aficionado due to the lack of any suitable offerings.
