I have always loved the Bacchus and have been going there for over 40 years. We called in over the Christmas period for an afternoon drink and it was buzzing as usual and it’s not a cheap bar so they must be making a fortune, now it’s time to spend some of that profit on “home” improvements, those giant wine glasses on the way up the stairs to the toilets have been decorating the stairwell since Adam was a lad (and I don’t think they have been dusted since then either) and the carpet is threadbare. Time for a New Year wash and brush up.

I have been visiting The Bacchus for many years now. Excellent choice of beers and ciders mixed with a pleasant atmosphere. Usually has a good crowd, nothing pretentious or hipster yet a nice place to socialise with a few drinks.
Always on the list of places to come on a night out.

The Bacchus is one of those bars you keep going back to, a good selection of Beer and Ale with edible food if you want it as a snack or a dinner. The one thing I will note is that the prices are starting to creep up, but that just might me getting Old
