The Institute Bar is great in the daytime with lots of comfortable seating, and brilliant in the evenings with all your favourites behind the bar. 

There’s a lot of things to be excited about including pool tables, comfy sofa’s and a great selection of drinks. A big bonus is the HUGE terrace outside for you to enjoy when the days get warmer.

The Institute Bar is the most chilled of our bars with great drink deals and live Jazz sessions every Monday at 20:00 (coming soon) and a pub quiz every Wednesday from 19:00.

Term-time opening hours:

Monday to Wednesday: 12:00 - 23:00
