I was in quite recently and yes the jazz in the early evening is a bit naff, but the DJ who came on after was pretty good and wasn't too loud or intrusive.

Yes, it's a local's bar but you could just as easily find yourself a nice place at the bar or in one of the many corners out of the way and not be bothered, as join in for a chat with some exceptionally friendly regulars.

There really isn't that much choice on draught - but the prices are pretty reasonable and I found the staff to be perfectly pleasant and attentive - if in their own quirky ways.

Certainly, it's definitely trying to be cool almost as hard as some of the locals, but it's not trying too hard and has a sense of humour about itself.

That said, It's not really my kind of place, but an independent and idiosyncratic genuine local's bar is a rare thing these days and I can see why people like it.

Give it a go, you might surprise yourself.

great pub, lovely local vibe just do NOT use the phone number published on the site because it goes through to my home number and i'll just be rude to you

i would be inclined to disagree with any naysayers regarding Biddle Bros.
when you catch the bar on a good night, you'll have a pleasant evening of entertainment and banter with complete stangers. it's cosy when it's cold outside and the barstaff have their own personalities which match or grate depending on you're own social compatability. it's a real allsorts kinda place and i'm occasionly found drinking there because i feel very much at home. it's a drinkers' bar who like a good chat!

Mediocre little bar, a bit pretentious and a bit seedy, but not in a good way.
