Fantastic food and even better cocktails. Staff are all really friendly and it has a gothic feel that makes it stand out to any old normal boring bar. Go in and try the seven sins

The drinks are good and the music is ok...the decor of course is awesome. But the clientele has gone from mostly music lovers to middle-aged hen dos... the food is pretty crap, even for a pub, but a beer and some chips is pretty good.

Good place to go if you like rock music and cocktails. The seven deadly sins are cool. Note - the toilets are behind a hidden wall!

I've walked straight past this place for years. Recently, a friend suggested we pop in there. I've been back 3 times since then. It's a very nice pub. They seem to have a couple of new guest beers every time I visit, decent English ales. Not too adventurous on the craft beer front but very drinkable. Between the three of... More

Really fun and quirky pub. Cheap prices and chilled atmosphere. The highlight is the toilet hidden in a bookcase!
