The Chequers Inn, Headington

Hell-hole. I went here on a monday night, because I forgot that The Masons Arms around the corner opens at 7pm. Never been there before. Looks lovely from the outside in a nice village setting.
Went in and was greeted by dance music on the speakers and sky sports news on large screens. At the bar, at least they had Hobgoblin on . .. until I tried it. The worst pint of Hobgoblin I have ever had. Vile and you could tell by the seasoned-looking barmaid that she rarely served it.
It had a few dart boards, but no atmosphere at all. A few sinister-looking eyes watching you and a few pockets of people waiting for The Masons Arms to open.
Avoid.

Trillians Rock Bar, Newcastle

This place has been going down the pan for the past 10 years and is in a sorry state, now.
Even when is started doing food, I was warned by the barman when asking if they did "Mind, Stevie's cookin it!". I wasn't sure who Stevie was, but I swerved that one.
In the years which followed, what must be poor management has attempted to attract students with themes, horrid drinks promos, loyalty cards and the like. Not a good beer selection, with the Caffreys being taken off being the killer. I always drink Dog when I am there.
Because of my memories of the place, I keep going back, but it just makes me sadder and sadder.
Get rid of all the tat, get some good ales in, and find someone who can book a band or two. If you want to introduce a loyalty card, make it to do with the number of bands you have come to see, not the amount of crap you hoy down your neck.

Sgt Peppers Disco Bar, Newcastle

I had my first ever pint here when I was 15! Haha.
Only been in a couple of time since. I think you know what you are in for when you go here, so it is pointless criticising it.
People having a good time. Nice to see, but I won't be getting involved.
