About the Pub

Closed 16/7/2020, this was as a result of Covid-19 restrictions, which despite easing of these, the owning company could not afford to go on. The future is uncertain for now. Was a modern-thinking bar set in the 19th C surroundings of the city's former Deaf Institute (indeed that is still inscribed over the door), although very little of the old decor appears to remain. The Trof chain seems to like vivid decor, so here one gets big, bold print wallpaper, large expanses of colour, plus some soothing matchboard wall panelling. Blackboards abound advertising food, forthcoming music (see website and posters for events listings) and other offers. The ground floor is a horseshoe shape with the bar to one side, there is an upstairs concert room and bar too (mostly for weekend use), and a basement bar which has disabled access to the toilets there. To the outside rear is the terrace, a spartan space for smokers with checkerplate industrial flooring and little or no view. Began selling cask in July 2013, and at a reasonable price too. Sadly the cask ale fell out of favour in early 2017. Food is served 10 till late. History: opened 29/2/08.
