Rob Hunter left this review about Head

Visited last night (Tuesday). At the bar are two hand pulls for cask ale plus 12 keg taps split across two T-bar fonts of five and a separate tall pair of taps towards the centre of the bar. The keg options ranged from Guinness to Saltaire and some foreign beers, possibly Belgian. Both cask options were beers by Torrside - Strategic Reveries (porter) and Paper Lanterns (pale ale). Both were decent and in good nick.

The place is geared up for live music with a small stage area set up ready to go. There is also a piano. The bar is central with space in front of it, a room off to the side with a games table, there is a small partially enclosed room to the side of the bar with room for just one table and two sofas (one each side), and there is a further area behind the bar. Furniture is basic and rustic but perfectly adequate.

Toilets are upstairs, where things start to get a bit more basic, and still looks like a "staff only" section of whatever used to occupy this unit before it became a bar. However the place has only opened recently and this may still be work in progress.

This could have been a let down, but I was quite impressed with the place, very different to the Longford Tap round the corner, a totally different vibe, but a decent beer selection and that's the main thing for me.
