This is the first time on the tour visiting the same location twice. Since we were last here, when it was Anderson’s, it’s had a full refit, new management and changed its name. It appears to be aiming for a more salubrious target audience. The whole bar is new, trendy furniture, fancy wallpaper.
There was a good few folk in on this quick Friday night visit, around 7-8pm. The majority of the punters were late twenties to early thirties office types, apart from a couple of guys at the bar who looked like they missed Anderson’s. Instead of football on the telly, there was cricket.
Two cask taps, only one on on this visit, Caledonian Deuchars. Kegs were Tennent’s Lager, Coors Light, Estrella Damm, Belhaven Best, Guinness, Addlestone cider.
I’ve got no record of how much a pint cost, but if it was either expensive or particularly cheap I think I’d remember. I’m sure it’s under £4 a pint for cask at least.
Wraps, panini and tapas, mostly all £5 with a few £4 or £6.
