Closed and boarded up yet again. A pity, as it's in such a great area.

was looking for this place this week and was trying to remember were it was on gloucester road..then it suddenely dawned on me...its now a jesters comedy club..was always busy wen i frequented this place but as wetherspoons are wary of drug hangouts im not surprised it one needs that crap.

This pub suddenly closed in about October 06. Probably related to the crackheads reported by other reviewers

No longer owned by Wetherspoons, but by Scottish and Newcastle I believe, this place still does *very* cheap beer and hence attracts the local AA members. Lacking in atmosphere, but full of crackheads in the toilets I'd avoid it like the plague.

The only reason you'd go here is if you're totally skint and are after a place to get loaded before you move onto somewhere decent

I went there the week it opened (back in 2002 I think) and even then the beer was awful, yet the lines must've been clean since they were brandnew! (or do Wetherspoons recylce car brake fluid lines for their pumps?) What do they do to the stuff?

Atmosphere is the usual, could be a nice place as it's got a spacious high ceiling but I'd go the the Pipe and Slippers over the road any day.
