The Sandbar is a bar that I've been meaning to get to for some time. Yesterday, I finally managed to get there in spite of the late arrival of my train. I was greeted by an empty pub, but a decent selection of ales and a cider I'd not previously had. Real ales were Facer's Clwyd Gold & Winter Pale, Phoenix Arizona & Christmas Kiss, Silver Street Saison & Porter & Brass Castle Bad Kitty. The cider was Moss Cider Project All In Hand. With just time for a couple of swift halves, I opted for the cider and the porter. Both were good, especially the porter. A few more people did come in during my visit. But I guess the pub gets busiest when the students are in town. Payment is by card only. At almost 15 minutes walk from Piccadilly, it seems a bit off the beaten track. But there's a good chance that I'll be back one day.

As good as remembered on 2 previous visits. Mainly students but a few families as well. Really characterful and with good service.

The beer range remains broad, and although there were quite a few real ale drinkers it can mean that cask turnover for some of the range is affected. Of 2 Privateer beers, 1 was good and 1 was average.

How a bar should be and now something of an old favourite having been on the scene for a decade and a half now. Like a previous interlocutor, I was impressed with the Clwyd Gold and they do have a nice mix of real ales and craft beers. Distressed brick interiors makes you half expect Adrian Sherwood to be on the soundsystem and the location is good between university and city centre.

Called in again recently. Sampled a superb pint of stout from the aptly named Outstanding Brewery. Okay, it was delivered via keg but if it tastes good, who am I to complain? I'd give 10/10 purely on the stout alone!

Because of the nature of its location, my visits are less frequent than I'd like. The pub has got a very bohemian feel, which adds to the experience in my opinion.

Keep it up!

First time in a here for quite a few years - only because I don't get down Oxford Road much these days. Friendly service, excellently-kept ale - Clwyd Gold - and relaxed atmosphere. Well worth a visit and still 10/10.
