The beer I had was exceedingly warm, too warm to enjoy. From the other comments I am guessing this is not normally the case. Thought the atmosphere was OK.

The pub didn't look welcoming at all from the outside, it is probably like this all of the time, but looked even worse, being covered in scaffolding - inside, it's a little dingy, and yes, even a little smelly, whilst some of the women in our group looked questioningly why we were in there - Still reading ?
Well, the pub has one saving grace, and that's the decent selction of real ale served on the bar - whilst ever real ale remains relatively 'rare' in city centre's this pub will be okay, but if this becomes more prevalant, then this pub will just become a bit of a hole without the 'different' ale to attract people in.
If you like real ale, then visit for one - If not, then maybe a walk past is in order

I love the pub, but the building itself is ugly and the main bar is far too small.
Great beers, but any more than ten people in and it feels packed.

Waaaaay better than it used to be. The beers are kept better and the staff are excellent.

Atmosphere-wise its fine, especially Thur/Fri/Sat nights. the mix seems to be improving with the studenty presence being a bit diluterd of late.

Beer still great and barstaff on the ball.
