What a great pub. Their burgers are fantastic, and they have £2 drinks until Midnight. Definitely a younger crowd in the evening, what with being so close to the university and being situated at the top of West Street, but during the day I find it very pleasant.
Decor is lovely now that it's been refurbished. Very warn and welcoming. Staff were lovely and the food menu is great. Really cheap but good portions and good quality. We had the Yorkshire wrap. Drinks good value, too. Fantastic. Going again tonight!
It's never changed for years, same decor. Nice and cosy and friendly. It has been a rockers' pub since the days of the Wapentake Bar at least. It has a brilliant juke box and fab DJs who play proper original Heavy Metal, i.e. Judas Priest, Led Zepplin etc...
A lot of outer-towners seem to gravitate to it as well, like groups of Germans, Swedes and that.
When there's gigs on at the City Hall, just 200 yards away, you get the audience people dropping in, especially if there's a rock artist on.
We used to gather at this pub regularly, but not since Saturday when we found out that a small bottle of slimline tonic water costs £2.40. I know prices have gone up this is taking the mickey. A bottle probably only costs the pub 20p.
