Went in here late on a Saturday afternoon. It was very busy and very noisy. The beer and the wine were fine. What you would expect from a town centre pub. Good value for money.

Located in John Dalton Street on the edge of the city centre. There are much better pubs and bars in the city. This is an awful pub. Didn't stay long. Avoid!!

Ten minute walk there is a big car park on the old Boddington Brewery land, it's three pound all day. It's near the arena.
