    I say night because that's what time I'll be going down, I would assume it would be open from 11?

    It's been kept - although it wasn't open when I went, but have been informed it has been stocked up :D

    The Picture House has a sign up saying that the heating's knackered - a cynical ploy to get people to try the new place?..

    Walked past earlier on the way to the Post Office and it was packed - and is looking good.

    Wouldn't have thought so, they have ongoing issues with the heating in there, especially when they actually need to use it. Shudder to think how many pints of Ruddles it takes to keep that place warm 8AM to midnight during the winter.

    Was there for the opening today. It's really nice inside and well thought out, they've been doing their history homework on the building and incorporated it into the interior design nicely. Going for a pint there tonight :)

    Prices are good too!

    Does it say what the building used to be? We were discussing this in Joxers the other night.

    I'm fairly certain it used to be the old blacksmiths/forge, which actually made the big old butler bells.

    Packed when I walked past at 3.30pm. Not so many in an hour later but sure looked inviting!
