An encouraging selection of tasty but unheard of ales from West Country ales but a disappointing array of rules posted inside on the back of the door.

The Nowhere Inn is amazing if you like good beer, interesting characters, have a varied bit not poppy taste in music, and don't want a lot of chrome and glass - don't come here for cocktails, do come if you want interesting conversation

Maybe 8/10 players/singers and an eclectic but mostly traditional selection. Good to watch and sometimes to join in. Pub opens about 4pm, very busy Friday's, still virtually no student following despite being encircled by residences. Pub well run, retaining all its eccentricities and hospitality.

Sadly we don't have a dartboard, but we do have a pool table at 50p a game and a chess board available from behind the bar.
