A bugger to find at the first attempt due to the 'Cavern' bit of its name. Its situated above a cafe place and even then it is above something else called Paysan, which is a cafe/wine bar thingy. Anyway you have to go into the Paysan place and up the stairs at the rear which makes this 'cavern' on the 3rd floor! Once here it is actually a decent little place. Very wooden and the bar has 4 handpulls for real ale. Beers from Titanic, Mobberley, Peerless and Salopian on on my visit. Reasonably priced and enjoyable. The bar seating consists of toadstools.

As stated by Mr Hurdle, enter through the Paysan restaurant on the first floor of the Row then upstairs at the back, look for the fancy bracket sign on the outside to guide you from street level. The reclaimed wood counter has four hand pulls, as well as a selection of founts with better European and a couple of British beers, naturally there’s an outstanding array of bottles, all is listed in a comprehensive beer menu. One wall decorated with old masters and a scary mural, the bar stools are toadstools of course. A large gnome surveys the scene from above the staircase.

A new bar in the Bridge Street Rows. Mainly Belgian beers plus others from UK and other European Countries.
Above (and connected to) Paysan Wine Bar.
Enter via Paysan and go upstairs.
Three handpumps serve ales mainly from local micros.

In here they do the old custom of taking your shoe as surety when you buy a Kwak beer and raising it up to the ceiling in a basket until you return your Kwak stand.
