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

Stylish bar which is the latest (November 2021) adornment to the town's characterful Victorian Arcade. The split-level ground floor is decked out in Art Deco style with a dark-tiled floor, walls in two shades of teal blue and lots of light wood fittings.Upstairs are two drinking areas in similar vein, one featuring a marvellous original Rock-ola jukebox. On the walls are artworks by owners Dean and Fiona; the former is a renowned comic book artist (which is where the name of the bar comes from) while Fiona specialises in work based around American pin-up art of the 40s/50s. The two handpumps offer a changing choice of local beers while the seven keg fonts also rotate with two light beers, two dark ones, a sour, a lager and a cider. Lots of interesting cans and bottles as well. Also on the premises are the excellent Vinyl Underground record and, upstairs, Fiona's studio.shop
