The Johnno has had some ups and downs in recent years, but has now bounced back as a place that’s well worth the journey if you’re not local. The large beer garden has had an impressive makeover, large enough to accommodate three different covered areas and two large screens to show major sports events.

On the bar, the house beer seems to be Shipstones, with up to five real ales on rotation, and real ciders on offer. There’s also a small but decent selection of craft beers.

A food menu of pub pub favourites is accompanies by a number of weekly events, including an Open Mic night.

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
