Went in for a drink while walking around town, what an experience...
The bar staff looked like they were community service types, and needed a wash, never mind the place itself.
The toilets were revolting, but to be fair, the guy who was too drunk to aim for the urinals wasn't helping much.
It could be good for people watching I suppose, it's not often you see two 40 somethings standing snogging at the bar while folk around them are trying to get served.
At least I now know where they filmed the canteena bar scene in star wars, I was expecting Like Skywalker to walk in at any moment...
Best avoided.

Was in this not so fine toilet last night. The bouncer was unpleasent to say the least. The one with the specs and rough beard. He was refusing soliders at the door left right and centre. When asked why he give it all the usaul theoretical speel.
Well my bouncer friend when you hide your badge whilst on duty your breaking the Sia licence terms and conditons. Youbwere also asked by several people for your badge number but refused that...
Swashbuckle you fail me. It was armed forces weekend you would expect soliders to be out.

This was the 1st pub we visited on our recent trip. Have never been in before and needless to say will never be going again !! To briefly describe - dark, dingy, fusty, sticky, smelly, noisy, slow service, not particularly cheap, white wine was described as disgusting. I urge anyone to avoid and move on elsewhere !!

Been the same for years. Ok place for a few drinks. Pool table, dance floor. It looks small inside but deceiving it is bigger than you think. Staff do the job and do it well. The place is a little grubby with dirty floors and toilets etc. All in all, worth a pint if you in the area but dont go out of your way to visit...you wont miss much

Went here one night. Very crowded, floor sticky, loud music. Toilets were disgusting and didn't lock, there was water all over the toilet floor in the ladies. And as for the bar prices I was charged £2.20 for half a coke! The lager was cheaper but was watered down and warm. Shall not be returning.
