An interesting pub, this one - from the outside it resembles a nuclear bunker, from the inside it's an unusual cross between a student union and an indie nightclub. 'Arty' murals and fairy lights brush shoulders with Guinness inflatables and kitsch (we're presuming) dried flower arrangements; it's self-consciously eclectic but not overly pretentious. There's a fairly bog-standard range of beers and other drinks, with John Smith on tap and Old Specked Hen in bottles for lager-phobics. What really raises this pub above the average is the refreshing programme of live music on every night for the princely sum of 3. We ended up listening to 'experimental electronic folky meanderings', which might not be everybody's cup of tea, but with the apparently all-embracing music policy you're bound to find at least one night to suit your taste. Not the place for a quiet pint, perhaps, but well worth the walk if you're looking for something a bit different.

Go in there, watch a band, walk out with a smile on you face. Not much else to it really.
