This former Natwest Bank was converted to a craft beer bar in September 2022, the second outlet from Crooked Brewing.
It’s a beautiful conversion, with the bar being bright, clean and welcoming. The team member was also helpful and friendly, so first impressions were all very positive. Someone left a review a couple of weeks ago stating:
“Decor is hideous, no style. The seating is like horrid school chairs nowhere comfortable to relax.”
Well, each to their own, but I think it’s stylish and comfortable 🙂
I went for the Patternist from Polly’s Brew Co and I went for just a third of a pint, with the pricing being reasonable. It’s a hazy IPA, suitably rich in juicy flavour and there were plenty of hops in this. I also had a taster of the Mimosa from Campervan Brewery, plenty of taste and not too much sourness.
I was impressed at this whole set-up, with some tempting beers in the fridges, although I didn’t acquire any. Richard though decided to buy the most expensive beer in the fridge, he’s very decadent like that. If I lived nearby, this would likely be a regular haunt as the beer selection was varied, the atmosphere is welcoming, the environment is clean and the service was friendly. It looks like they serve pizzas as their food option, which fits into this on-trend and rather decent bar.
