Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Balloon

Two bar corner pub which looks a bit odd as it appears to have been two separate buildings at some stage. Some traces of the former Greene King ownership remain visible. The public bar, accessed from the side door, has a few chairs and stools on one side and a longer space (used for regular live music events) going quite a way back on the other. No sign of life in the lounge bar, and I didn't feel particular comfortable under the curious gaze of the regulars. Two disused handpumps, so it was a quick pint of the insipid IPA Chilled and I was on my way.
