I dropped in here whilst the New Prince (Prince Of Wales) was being refurbished. The place is very tired and has the feel of a dark old student boozer from the 70's that has been forgotten about. I have been told that they have regular bands on. I guess financially, this place will be struggling and the property developers must be hovering!

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!!!

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.
