This review is for the downstairs bar (sort of a vaulted cave). I spent a couple of hours there on a Thursday afternoon and was basically by myself the whole time, but maybe it fills up in the evening. The beer selection was ok, but slightly less interesting than the two neighbors (Famous Royal Navy Volunteer and Small Bar). Didnít try the food (pizza).

Rating í16. Upped to 80, much improved.
Rating í15 64. The Bottle shop was open on this visit, hurrah, good choices, but I am rating the pub part of the establishment. Much of what I said before stands although it really is quiet and lacking atmosphere.
Rating í14, 72. The pub itself is in vaulted cellars below the never opened bottle shop, we visited 3 times in the week and it was never once open! There is an almost monastry like atmosphere in the cellar, quiet and reverent. The bar carries a mixture of Cask and Kegged beers with a decent range, although the quality left a little to be desired on our visits. Certainly worth a look but it never became a favourite for us.

2015-09-20. Cave like basement reminds me a lot of a place in Quebec City, with almost the exact same sort of architecture and brick decor. Dancey soundtrack makes me think it may get much busier in the evening. Felt pretty empty early on a Sunday evening. Itís at least at a reasonable volume, which is nice. Staff was friendly. Bartender chatted with me as he finished his pre-shift dinner. About a dozen taps and a dozen casks so thereís a decent selection, with a good number of bottles and cans as well. Enjoyed some Arbor, Moor and Wiper & True beers today. Nice spot overall. I would come back.

Fantastic cellar bar. Lovely cosy feel, pleasant music playing. Beer selection is good - appoc 12 kegs taps and 12 casks. Nice place to spend an evening. Would definitely come back.

Cellar bar and ground level beer shop that has nowhere like 380 bottles on sale downstairs but still nudges ahead of the Volley next door. Suffering from popularity and taking its eye off the ball. Can get chaotic when busy.

Great venue. Excellent range of beers on cask, with definite emphasis on local breweries. Good stuff on keg and in bottle as well. Fair pricing. And, they offer flights. My server admitted to me that it was her first shift, and I could have guessed based on how she operated; but the other servers seemed a bit more on-the-ball. The lower-ground level bar space brings to mind a cave - if youíre tall then mind your head at the margins. But the effect of the space is powerful, and I found it to be one of the more compelling drinking locations Iíve ever found myself in.

An overall great place. Given its proximity to Small Bar and the Famous Royal Navy Volunteer, you should certainly try to take it in along with the other two.

Visited on a Saturday afternoon in August 2015. Cellar bar with a decent array of cask and keg. A lot if beers were put on as we arrived forcing us to stay for more. Beer was all well looked after. Prices not too bad. Nice feel to the place with brick arch vaults going on. Reasonable bottle selection. Think this is the weaker of the 3 venues overall but still worth a look in
