Now called The Gallery. Bright and airy bar/eatery daytimes with good drinks offers, club at weekends.

To coincide with the opening of Turner Contemporary, Sheldon's has undergone what an only be described as a complete transformation.
A new 'gastropub' menu includes such delights as fishfinger rissoto, lung stewed in Irn Bru and served on a bed of grated Pringles and (yum, yum) flash fried pilchard with an energy drink jus.
I visited recently with my probation officer, Marty, and a young girl called Lolita who I met in remand centre.
We had it on our toes with the condom machine.

Exciting news...Sheldon's is now staging performance art!
On October 11, a Monday, Japanese conceptual artists Mitsuko Umbongo will be spending 12 hours naked, strapped to a Dyson while being force fed a mixture of porridge oats, baked beans and winter radish. The work is called CRITICAL MESS.
To celebrate the barstaff will all dress as characters from All Creatures Great and Small while guest ales will include Old Bumfluff best bitter and Sarah Miles pale ale, which has a real tang to it.
See you all there folks!

Please don't judge this place from the people sitting outside. Walk through the door and you will discover a wonderfully bohemian gastropub full of poets, painters and wannabee indie pop stars. the food is great too.
I had the deep fried grouse in a white wine sauce with game chips and sprouts.
My companion, Lord Funnock of Dumbarton, had the chicken nuggets.
To drink I had a quart of Old Nursemaid's Knee mild while Lord Funnock, my probation officer this year, had a carton of Umbongo* which he drank with a curly straw.
We will certainly be visiting this pub again, probably on their OAP pole dancing night.

* They drink it in the Congo apparently.

Things have certainly changed at Sheldon's since the last comment back in Sep 2006.
I visited last week and was pleasantly surprised to find a bohemian pub full of artists with goatee beards and people sitting playing chess. Elsewhere people were sitting alone, reading a drinking wine from the pub's extensive list (they have 13 whites and a mind-boggling 145 reds, including some relatively rare Medocs, some going back to 1995/96, both excellent years).
the food is also good, but simple. I had a red onion tart with a side salad dressed in balsamic chive creation. Delicious.
My companion, Lord Kharzi or Dunfrewshire, had a fried egg sandwich with a crescent of pringles on the side.
I drank a foaming pint of Carling Black label from the wood while his Lordship opted for a half of Sarah Miles Best Bitter, a very pale brew this with a real tang to it.
We will certainly be returning.
