Update. One of the previous bar staff has now taken over the lease of this much loved traditional local from the short-lived and not too popular recent holder. This is a great improvement. The beer is decent, with at least one local brew (currently Abbeydale Moonshine) and THE PIES ARE BACK! Locally made ones - all at £5.95 including chips or mash and mushy peas.

This used to be an apparently thriving student/local pub but, as it closed down over the summer, presumably it wasn't doing quite as well as it seemed!
It has now re-opened with new owners and has eventually started serving real ale and food again. However prices have increased significantly, and while they did re-introduce the excellent "Albert's pies" albeit at higher prices, a recent Friday lunchtime trip revealed that these have now been replace by a cheap commercial variety - still at the same price as Albert's pies under the previous management!
While I haven't been in the evening, the pub was almost deserted on the 2 Friday lunch times I have been. This is not altogether surprising, as prices are high for students but the current food quality isn't likely to appeal to clientele with deeper pockets.
