Student Trebles bar that was formerly known as Lennons.

This bar has has taken no time in living up to its name. With £1.70 charged for a half pint of Fosters lager (£1.80 for Guinness).

I am not sure who they are trying to attract. At those prices even with the usual offer of cheap trebles they will find it hard to attract a steady clientele once the freshers are spent up and have sussed out the cheaper alternatives in The Gate/Wetherspoons.

Will give this one a miss until the management come to their senses and try a bit harder to make the place more appealing. The bar has a large standing area with limited seating with the DJ booth located in the centre.

The bar is to the right of the main entrance with The Chamber upper bar/terrace open later in the evening accessed by a flight of stairs to the left. The lighting is dark and subdued with chandeliers over the bar.

Although the bar has a modern feel than before it was a bit lacking in atmosphere which was not helped by a member of staff who was particularly rude when I tried to have a look upstairs (Even though there was nothing to suggest the upstairs was closed).

Regular Music is on play at most times with a DJ a regular feature.

Disabled access not easy to upper level. Toilets small and clean

Price: Expensive if not drinking special offers.
