Managed house now. Not a patch on what it used to be. Last time I was in the Guinness was awful! Real shame.

Refurbished and now the Bull Ring. Good and bad news- good news is that its structurally unaltered inside, it still has a central bar and wood panelled walls, beams etc. Also serves real ale- Black Sheep was fine on my visit. Bad news is it doesnt know if it wants to be a pub or a bar. It's pretty smart (or soulless) and has some modern furnishings, and quiz machines, bandit and worst of all loud thumping music, a real turn-off for me. So it hasn't been completely ruined, which is good, but not sure if I'd want to return.

Recently refurbished and now called The Bullring Bar. Linked to the Smithfield Hotel next door. Friendly and busy atmosphere. Beer still of a good standard.

Excellent traditional town pub. Banks' seems to house bitter. Nice decor and excellent beer.
