The Johnno has had some ups and downs over the past couple of years, but it remains a solid pub serving the local community a fair few student medics from the nearby Queens Medical Centre.

On the bar you’ll find up to four real ales, frequently rotated so a good choice. There are also real ciders in offer.

One of the Johnno’s best assets is its huge beer garden, which should prove useful in a post-Pandemic world. It remains to be seen whether the popular summer Johnsonbery Festival will return. We’re just pleased the place has survived.



Music? Weekly open mic nights and occasional other events as advertised.

Food? A bar menu of pub favourites featuring burgers, light bites, sandwiches and Sunday roasts. And good pork scratchings.

People? A student crowd mixes with older ale lovers.


Opinion? The Johnno doesn’t have too much direct competition, and it’s certainly a building with character. It remains a great boozer, and more preferable than certain other venues within walking distance
