Been here several times and it never disappoints..... A traditional rock pub with a 5* juke box.....Drinks are reasonably priced and there is a pool table.....The toilets need a proper clean .....Apart from that its just a decent pub.... Rock on......

We do like visiting a good rock bar. We called in here the music was good but the place was very sticky and could do with a revamp. Bar staff okay but are rushed off their feet

Visited here as a part of a works night out, it’s distinctly a rock orientated establishment, the decor has seen better days both internally and externally, prices seemed ok and beer quality was good.

Beer is a little steep but it is quality brands to offer. Great place to see any bands and even if there is no event on the staff are sound and are constantly jamming to the constant mix of rock and metal on the jukebox.

I don't know where the Apollo is, the live bands have played their own stuff you'll either like or not. The "background music" is what I would call classic rock.
