About the Pub

This city centre bar has previously been O'Neill's and more recently Shenanigans before it underwent a significant refurbishment and reopened in October 2018 under the name of the Northern Way. Serving real ales, it has four hand pumps, one or two are used for cask beers whilst the others serve fruit ciders. Beer prices are amongst the lowest in the area.

There are many TVs showing mainly sports and the pub can be busy especially at weekends. A sheltered rooftop terrace is provided with seating and heating. The pub is also notable for the series of murals, which have been painted on the gable end facing Edward Street in recent years (see above); initially Brexit related, then commemorating the end of World War 1 and most recently celebrating the NHS, the emergency services and key workers in the fight against Coronavirus.

*Whilst recorded as a pub accepting the CAMRA voucher scheme recent experience from members suggests they currently do not accept them.
