We popped in after going to the theatre great atmosphere and friendly. Large bar area with plenty seats and the decor with the very large roof stained glass domed ceilings are fabulous. What puts the finishing touches to this bar is the choice of drinks...More

Popped in here after the Theatre, as it's right next door. A very old pub with amazing ceilings and lights. A good selection of real ale, lagers etc. Quite a basic, what you'd term a proper pub. However, there was a quiz on and the...More

Regularly end up in this pub during the week with a group of friends after rehearsing in the theatre next door. We're never to much trouble and the bar staff are always friendly and have a crack on with us! Could be a bit cheaper...More

This traditional pub makes such a change from the theme-style chain pubs that seem to have taken over every city centre. The Bodega has a nicely understated charm that uses its architectural merits to the full by creating a relaxed and cosy atmosphere. The selection...More

Staying nearby so popped in for a quick pint. Good, varied selection of ale on. Very well kept beer, friendly service and quiet. Well it was Monday afternoon ! Hate to see it on match days though there is a lot of room.
