Visited this place for first time in ages, on a recommendation, having been told it had had a makeover. On the plus side, the plastic glasses have been replaced with glass glasses, so must be a lot safer. This may be due to pricing chavs out of the place, £3.60 for poorly poured sour, tasting Guinness, should do the trick,. Decor wise, the ony noticeable change is that the stage has been replaced by an oversized dj booth (has Barry been poached from down the road?). There are also a load of church hall style foldaway tables, presumably stowed away when the disco starts. A pub for rich people with hearing difficulties, no taste buds nor sense of smell.

Good for watching sport if you're old and good to be seen if you're young. All expensive keg beers but standard Walkabout offering - you could be in any of them

Been here a few times now and its a simple place so Ill keep the review simple. Firstly drinks, all very over priced in my opinion for what you get. Had some offers though which kind of made up for it, stay clear of the draught stuff put simply my Guinness had no head, need I say more. Bottles were nice and cold so aim for them when you visit. Service was ok, they never seem under staffed and you shouldnt be waiting to long but as usual if you have breasts you'll get served quicker. Toilets are as good as you can expect on a Saturday night, again enough said. Plenty of space and seating, they have a balcony which over looks the canal and a "under ground" bit which basically mirrors the ground floor but its only ever open on really heavy nights, no big loss really. But when it is open this place literally doubles in size and its big as it is. Music is usually good and encourages people to get up and dance which is good for the atmosphere. The atmosphere generally is very good I personally havent seen a fight in here but I could just be lucky. Not a bad place for Broad Street, defiantly worth a visit.
