Regular beers: Bath Ales Gem

See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

Update Feb 2024 from a visitor - "Bath Ales Gem the only cask ale on - and on the sole handpump on the bar counter - and it was lifeless and almost dull tasting."

The front terrace is now rather dark, sporting as it does a semi-permanent 'roof' all the way to the footway (pavement), with tables and chairs and overhead heaters. It makes the large room - largely 'decorated' in architects distressed brick wall - that comprises the main seating and drinking area even darker, on an admittedly cloudy and rainy afternoon, excepting the tables at the side windows. There is a selection of keg beers including two from Brixton Brewery, and at least one from Beavertown.

There are two toilets just behind the bar, and more in the rear where the bands perform.

The kitchen, adjacent to the bar, was open to view from the room. The menu leans heavily on the pizza and burger selection. "While none of us were hungry - other than for a decent pint - we did see some tempting pizzas being served to an adjacent table."

The pub went through a refurbishment, just up from Manor House tube. It has been through many disguises in the past including the infamous Mr Q chain and now features live music or another live event every evening, there being a stage in the back room.
