|An absolute hole.|
Pretty sure the short guy behind the bar is on the take. Prices seem to be made up on the spot, got told 3 different prices for the same pint in one evening.
Obnoxious, foul mouthed idiot in a denim jacket started shouting. We left.

|Have been drinking in the Bun Shop/Brave New World for the past 20 odd years and after all that time have now been barred by the drunken supposed owner!! I was talking to a friend when she passed and said to my friend "Here now!" pointing to anther part of the bar! I said "How rude, I'm in the middle of a conversation" she repled "If you don't like it, then F**k off annd find somewhere else to drink!!" I confronted her and all she had to say was "Pick on someone your own sex" Bit difficult unless she's transgender!!!|

|THE STAFF ARE GREAT - BUT FIGHTING A LOST CAUSE.|
this place is very nearby, so sadly it has to be my local if I cant be bothered walking an extra 10 mins to a better place.
The manager and employed staff are friendly and try hard with live music, event nights, a well tended garden and a good weekly quiz.
But all their efforts go to waste when the owner seems determined to drive custom away with over-loud music, foul looks and rudeness from the barstool that she seems rooted to . The decor is tatty and tired and no money has been spent on the place since the late 90s. There was a time when they ran out of stock on a regular basis, but someone seems to be paying the supply bills now.
it also had a reputation for a high turnover of managers, some being sacked overnight, But the latest manager and his team have survived a relativly long time, and his efforts seem to keep the place going.
It is spacious, so easy io find tables. The juke box also tends to have a good selection, but the owner tends to pump up the volume too loud to be able to talk.
It is a good place to watch big sporting matches, which gets a good atmosphere. But a lot of locals disappear as soon as a game finishes.

|Have started drinking in here as I've just moved around the corner and what a find it is! Great live music, friendly bar staff and good beer! |

|Spacious knocked through pub with colourful decor more appropriate for a tapas bar. Popped in for a quick pint while the footie was on the big(-ish) screen on a Sunday. Only ale on draught was Doom Bar in decent nick. Not busy but not quiet. Pool table in a separate room to the left hand side as you look at the place.|
And when did it change from being the Bun Shop? It must be nearly thirty years since I went in it as such but it lives long in the memory.
