Any traces of the New Market are now firmly gone - good. 26 Smithfield is now an uber-trendy bar with regular live music and a decent menu on offer. Last time we were in it was a little early and a bit quiet while that night's entertainment set up. The recent refurb has left it done out in black and white with faux-marble panels decorating the walls and the finished result is definitely more bar than pub. The reasonably priced wine list is probably one of the main draws for local workers and the lagers on the bar are decent enough. There are bottled ales in the fridges behind the bar for the beer drinkers - we guess they don't get enough call for bitter to put in a tap. With regular food and drink specials and free live music on Thursday nights, they're definitely working hard to retain those hard-won punters.

I took my girlfriend here the other day expecting to have a refreshing night out, recommended by a friend, but the place is pokey and small. What's more the booze and food is extremely expensive - a small coke is about £2 and pints are like over £4. The Bar and Grill next door is really good though!

We went thier a while back and had a totaly weird nifgt. We were trying to enjoy the music but one of the bar staff kept stalking up and down as if she ownned the place - huffing and pufing like nobodies business. It was reall off putting and didnt help the atmosfere coz its a cool venue.
