Nice to visit mid week when itís a little quieter. Decent selection of Vic micros on tap and in bottles. Some dishes on the food menu do look good but oh so expensive for what it is. Thus, yet to try the food. TVís showing sport (itís Olympic time right now). Not a lot of seating available at the bar, which isnít a huge problem if not checking in during later week evenings. A new beer garden is on the cards though.

The Roystonís little brother in basically every way. Nice front bar but not quite as nice as the Royston. Similar range (emphasis on Vic micros) to the Royston but a couple less taps. Havenít eaten there but the food menu but seems of a similar ilk (and identical font) to the Royston too. Definitely worth a look, but if I found myself ten times exactly halfway between the Terminus and the Royston Iíd go to the Royston about 9.5 times. Definitely up there in the inner north beer stakes though.
