Recently opened new bar in The Central Station area previously known as The Long Bar. The bar has ben given a full makeover and now offers a selection of Pieminister pies and a fine range of real ales, craft beers, wines and gins.

There is a long bar to the left of the main entrance with a part tile and wooden floor and smart drop down lighting fixtures over the bar. The glass exterior gives a bright feel to the bar by day and in the evening there is more subdued and cosy atmosphere.

There is plenty of seating throughout the bar with a mixture of booths and seating by the window as well as high tables and chairs.

The bar is split into two tiers with a separate area at the rear which has a further bar and looks out towards the Station Hotel. There are 3 widecreen TV's in the main bar area that make for an excellent place to watch sporting events. Live football matches are shown with premiership matches featured.

The bar attracts a mixed clientele of business people, young crowd, students and those watching the football. It is a good starting out place on a night out and should become a popular attraction to this area with the fine range of drinks available.

The bar is extremely busy on a weekend and also through the week. Regular music on play at most times. A games machine is located towards the rear of the pub. There is a small outside patio and smoking area.

Disabled access is very good with a designated disabled toilet next to the main entrance. Toilets are very smart and clean.

Price: Moderate.
