I remember this pub from the days when it was called the Blue Bell. A good traditional and comfortable City Centre pub but quiet at the time of my visit.

Mid-afternoon on a Sunday. Quiet in here, but the big news is that it has stopped raining outside.

Brains - Café Phoenix4.40ExcellentIm no coffee lover, but a couple of people had recommended this one to me today so I gave it a go. A very dark ruby red colour black in most lights. Served with a creamy head and creamy texture. A coffee-flavoured Porter with a dry, bitter edge.
