About the Pub

Located in one of the arches in the lower Market Place Vaults this atmospheric bar is accessed via either of the two escalators, the lift or the new entrance with steps from Bridge Street opposite Argos. The vaults area has been refurbished it includes several 'big-name' chain eateries as well as for what real ale drinkers would call the Great Ale in the Vaults as the 'jewel in the crown' of the development. Behind the bar is a play area for children including a train ride and crazy golf (a charge is made!), there is also a nine-screen cinema on the top floor. The overall appearance of the bar is well in keeping with the Victorian Cellar in which it is housed. The long bar has four handpumps serving three guest beers and one specially brewed ale for the Vaults by Outstanding Brewery using Australian Hops.There is another connection with the antipodes as Steve Simms originates from down under and behind the bar are several interesting Aussie brewery and beer advertising metal plaques. The beer is kept in glass fronted chilled cupboards behind the bar. Paddles of three 1/3rds of cask ale are available. The Vaults opens all year round except on Easter Sunday and Christmas Day. May close earlier in the evening when quiet!
