8th Apr 2012 - This is a big Pub bar with lots of shiny tubes and metal bits behind glass and all over the place.. Its split over many levels up down and around. Not a great place to meet as you could spend all night searching for whoever your looking for. I have eaten here and enjoyed the food however on this trip the table we were stood near left 3 almost untouched pizzas behind so they obviously have much higher standards than me. The place has a very large selection of bottled beer as well as a number of own brand beers on tap and I tried the oyster stout (not a bottled beer) which was pretty good. Its all a bit big corporate feeling for a romantic drink but if your in a big group and can find a table You'll have a good time. If you want to watch sport there is a number of screens although they are a bit small for such a big pub. The atmosphere was good and its a great place to stop and everyone there seems to be having fun whenever I have popped in. A slow stop on a pub crawl due to its size but usually worth the extra time spent queuing and finding a spot to drink.

3rd May 2006 - A plumbers dream pub, with many a copper BSP pipe attached to another pipe with a 45 degree JIC fitting. Yep, they've gone overboard on the pipe theme, but the array of beer on offer is simply staggering. From their own brews to eastern Euro pils, it would take weeks to taste them all. Bit on the pricey side, hence the score of 6, but well worth a brief sojourn in the afternoon.

2nd May 2006 - Loads of rooms over 3 floors. Due to its location, it is completely rammed any evening of the week and drinkers always spill out into the street, but it has a warm atmosphere and I like their cocktails.
