I've been here a couple of times before but don't seem to have left a review. Returned on Saturday night. As has already been mentioned, it is run by Blackjack and is part of the Mackie Mayor building with a mix of other food and drink places. 8 cask beers plus 10 keg to go at. On Saturday there was just one Blackjack beer on cask and the rest were guests. I had a Dark Apostle by Anarchy which was a fairly decent stout. It's basically a drinking and eating hall so lacks the cosiness of more traditional pubs, but there is a decent enough ale selection to make this worth an occasional visit.

An interesting venue for food and beer along with some fabulous features in Victorian architecture and design. We went for the Burning Sky Plateau and Wild Weather Cry of the Upstarts, both of which were in excellent condition.

Smithfield Meat Market has been converted into an area of food stalls around the perimeter with bench seating below the impressive glass roof suspended by huge iron columns the length of building know as Mackie Mayor.
It was in this context that Blackjack Brewery set up a bar ,with seating around the side entrance opposite the Smithfield pub.The mission was to showcase some of the highest quality real ales alongside the multitude of street food vendors trying to do the same with their food offerings.It's all very hip and trendy ,quite hectic but there is an upstairs verandah overlooking the crowd below,plus the seating by the bar entrance is calm enough.
Choose your ale and wander around,the choice from the bar was from 8 handpumps their own Jack in the Box Pale (very fine),Five Points Railway Porter,Six O Clock Split Shift,Siren Yulu,Anarchy Brew Boot Boys,DDH Pale,Blue Sky Plateau,Wild Weather Cry of the Upstarts and Harbour Cornish Bitter.
Given the range,worth including on a real ale crawl but don't expect a real pub experience,this is bar life.
