It's your typical trendyesque bar. Picture people on their iPhones wearing a trilby and a scarf indoors, and you've almost got The Sunflower Lounge. Very poor selection of drinks (no ales), and expensive if you're looking for a drink.

If however, you're looking for a quiet place in the afternoon for an average drink and to listen to some top top music, this place is for you. One of my recent visits on a Friday afternoon had me bombarded with all kinds of classics ranging from The Beatles, to The Who, to Led Zep, Jimi Hendrix, The Small Faces and The Rolling Stones. I was in heaven....

....then I stayed there a little while longer, the music went louder and clubbier, and the clientele became more fashionable. Try and leave before this point. They do make an effort for a variety of evening activities in their defence. Nights include quizzes, films, live bands and DJs. They also promote Sky Sports, although the times I've been in there the sound is often off.

Overall, not a good pub, but a good music bar.

So if youíve read the previous comments youíll have realised this is an INDIE BAR. Nails down a chalk board to some and a sheer utopia to others. Now my style is pretty boring and defiantly not indie in any way but I can easily enjoy what this venue has to offer. They sell a wide variety of drinks including the rare and outstanding desperados which I suggest you try when you go itís impressive in every way. The music isnít strictly indie all the time they play a good variety styles, the underground part of the place usually hosts live bands. The staff were very nice to talk too and look at (had to be said) if a bit slow. But its not 100% their fault, the bar is stupidly small even for the size of the venue and I donít just mean in length, in depth too, they can barely move behind there. Yes itís full of indie style folks but if thatís not your usual taste when it comes to the opposite sex trust me give it a go, youíll get a nice surprise. Enough said.

Well I hope this gives a more level headed review of this place

Despite the surfeit of polka dot dresses and skinny ties (it's not 2002 anymore!!), a very underrated establishment. Surprisingly wide and variable selection of on tap, knowledgable resident and guestDJs, and a short stagger from the train station. Thumbs up

as previous reports have said, it's a good bar with decent music etc, just a shame about the punters really. Can't people just enjoy themselves without having to try so very hard to be uber indie?? the whole point of indie to begin with... oh, whats the point??

Nice bar but completley full of posers trying to out-do each other in indie-ness. Good range of alternative draught beers though.
