After a visit to the Terrace just opposite (quite decent and requested for addition to the site), we returned to the Common. Alcohol is now served in the mornings. Although Ilkley Mary Christmas was the only real ale available. Craft beer options were from breweries such as Beatnikz, Magic Rock, Stone, Track, Wild Beer Company, Lost & Grounded & Runaway. Still more of a café/eatery than a bar.

Returned to this bar on Saturday afternoon and unlike in November 2011, we actually got served this time. In fact, it was the best of 7 pubs we tried on the day. The two real ales were Roosters Yankee and Red Willow Wreckless. There is also an interesting array of keg options. I sampled the Mikkeller Stour which was very nice, albeit expensive. The bar was busy. Some were eating food. But as previous reviewers pointed out, the clientele is young. Certainly worth popping in to see what beers they have on.

I like this sort of pub, which serves good beer in a relaxed cafe style, even if it was too busy to get fed when we visited on a Saturday p.m. The Marble (I think) was very good indeed.

Certainly unusual mixed interior, no name outside and not the easiest place to find.
Generally young crowd, two beers from Restless and Magic Rock. Both excellent but so they should be for �3.50 a pint.
Don't see much point in going back, there are nicer and cheaper places.

This bar looks more of a shop or cafe from the outside, but we were glad to find it open yesterday morning, when so many other bars and pubs in the Northern Quarter were still closed. Sadly when we wanted to get served , we were told that they didn't serve alcohol until midday and we'd have to wait 15 minutes. In a thirsty state, we made a swift exit. Marble Draft #6 and Darkstar Hophead were the 2 real ales, with the cider being Stowford Press. 1/10 for the promise of beer. I'll review this rating when I can finally get served here.
