Microbrew bar located in one of the railway arches close to the Central Station.

The bar serves a fine selection of real ales and craft bottled beers.

There is a large board beside the bar advertising the ales on offer which will change regularly due to the bars popularity.

The casks are located behind the small bar and there is barrel tables and chairs with seating by the window to the front of the bar.

Upstairs there is an arched function room with further seating and a 31 foot Pub Skittle Alley. Darts night on a Monday and Wednesday.

Free Wifi throughout bar. Live music featured on certain nights.

The bar should continue to be a firm favourite with the fine selection of ales, keg beers, ciders and craft beers on offer.

In a 2017 feature by the Times Newspaper The Split Chimp was voted Number 6 in the Top Ten Micropubs, out of 300 in the country.

Toilets are located at the rear of the bar. Disabled access to lower level of bar.

Price: Reasonable.
