a CAMRA man’s dream above a rubbish wine bar - it is indeed a nightmare to find if you haven’t been before. Four real ales were Titanic Cappuccino Stout. Beatnikz Republic 2am Poet, Oakham Citra and Anarchy Brew Co Invaders Dream (very nice). Shitloads of foreign bottles catalogued in their beer menu from countries including Austria, Norway and three pages of Belgium. i propped up the bar on a toadstool and quite took to this place despite my initial reservations about the name sounding like a terrible prog rock album.

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.
