What a change since my last visit. Four real ales on which makes a change for this type off pub, I had White friar from Abbey Ales. Spoke to the landlady Fran who seems to have some great ideas for the place. well worth a visit and the food looked great.

A recently refurbished Abbey Ales pub just north of the main shopping district. Youre presented with a choice of two bars as you walk in, the City Bar and the Sports Bar. In practise the dcor and ambience in both seemed quite similar, the only sports concession being the addition of a pool table and a couple of quiz machines.

Its an attractive enough place, although not in a traditional pubby sort of way. Theres newish looking wood stripped flooring, a couple of large sofas in front the fire place and various rugby photos dotted around the wall. There were a couple of plasma screens around, although these were not in use on our visit. The food offering was very basic, with just four or five pub grub dishes to choose from. The music seemed slightly too loud for the character of the pub.

Beers on tap were predominantly from Abbey, with their Bellringer, Hells Bells and Winter Warmer. There was also BFG from Black Country Ales. The solitary cider was Thatchers Gold.

I'd read the blurbs in previous posts about an upgrade on the old Assembly and having heard that it had been bought by Abbey Ales, I entered eagerly hoping to find a new pub bursting with Black Friar and all of the trappings of Abbey Ales success?? Sorry to report I found an Assembly still struggling to extracate itself from its own old skin. No Abbey Ales seemed to be on, and the old girl seemed tired and a little worse for wear honestly.... And, this was a Saturday night when Bath's pubs really look to make their week pay off? The Assembly of old used to be a bit of a dive to be honest, but now it's just a bit sunken in the mouth. Come on Abbey, give it a face-lift!!

I don't know what to make of this place really - I think it needs some serious attention to bring it up to the standard of most other Bath pubs. 2 beers on offer yesterday plus a cider. Lady behind the bar seemed more interested in her computer than the customers or empty glasses lying around. Kitchen door open to the pub showing a less than tidy kitchen - not terribly inviting really.
