This place goes through new managers like water. Every single one says they've got great plans for making it a live music venue, which boils down to getting a few acts on and a karaoke night (all on an atrocious sound system - one home 4 channel mixer and two monitors) set at ear bleedingly loud volume) monopolised by a couple of locals, before they move on again. Probably because they realise what they're faced with.
Tried to support the music side, but grew tired of the 'locals' being extremely aggressive, strangely enough mostly after they returned from the gents. The last straw was when two friends were repeatedly harassed for their appearance - presumably you're only allowed in 'their' pub if you have an £80 shirt and £300 shoes (or you're there to buy *something*) - and another friend was sent flying when a bunch of locals decided they liked the band and started shoving everybody around. If any of them read this review, being a bunch of overweight and *sniff* *sniff* 50 year olds pretending they're watching Nirvana in a local pub does not give you the right (or make it funny) to deliberately hurl yourselves into ladies who use walking sticks when they're trying to get past. And a real mosh pit (or wrecking pit, for that matter) is where you help people up, not laugh inanely at yourselves for being so amusing.
If you wondered about the beer garden, it's some rickety tables in the carpark.
