Traditional Victorian red brick boozer - with some fine opulent features. Leather topped bench seating, chandeliers, gilded bass mirrors. All very consumer friendly.

Beers - three from UBU - Purity in fine nick (as you would expect from a Good Beer Guide regular) and Doombar and their won pale ale.

Bit out of the way - neither the Jewelry Qtr or the City - so an effort is required to get there. I would come back if passing.

A lovely Victorian interior but otherwise, quite boring. The ale selection was especially uninspired - not surprising from NIcholson's whose wares tend to be humdrum in the extreme. Doom Bar also about as welcome as Donald Trump at a vegan march.

This used to be a lunchtime haunt of mine 20 years ago when I worked just round the corner but I had to say I had forgotten it (although I suspect it has changed a bit since then). Very busy last night (standing room only) so I just had the one Saltaire American Nut Brown which was pretty good. Also on sale were Hilden's Irish Stout, Brains Café Phoenix, St Austell Nicholsons Pale Ale and Nicholsons Porter and Doom Bar.

Perhaps not as grand as the Old Contemptibles but worth a visit nonetheless as around 4 real ales to choose from including the Nicholsons (St Austell) Pale Ale. Food was very good - would recommend the chicken and mushroom pie as definitely homemade and well filled.

I wasn't planning to visit this pub. But I was passing and thought I would give it a quick visit. It's a Nicholsons pub with a fairly fine interior and is bigger than it first looks, with a couple of rooms and a nice outdoor courtyard. The beer selection was good - Robinsons Globe Hopping, Adnams Explorer, Sunny Republic Beach Blonde, St Austell Nicholson's Pale Ale, Purity Ubu & Sharps Doom Bar. Although I chose to have an Aspalls cider. Probably worthy of a return visit.
