Dingy, dirty, well worn bar. The fixtures were tatty and the decor in need of a refurb. Probably a 'cool place' to hang out for the younger generation but not for us. Has a 'happy hour' and offers on drinks.

Stumbled across the entrance for this cellar bar in the centre. Tried it out anyway, crossed between a Student bar and Goth bar. It had sport on the big tv's which was a good thing and decent prices!

Nothing wrong with the place itself, nice and chilled out, free pool. But with the reviews on here and the camra signs and real ale revolution signs, I was expecting a good choice of real ales, it wasn't to be, I think it was 2...More
