Absolutely the same, by the sound of it.  This one has a glass staircase as
well though, which has merits of it's own that I won't go into.

There are a whole bunch load on Mill Lane (not strictly beer gardens, more a
lot of tables and chairs out front).  Sam's Bar is the first that springs to
mind.  Directions to Mill Lane from the station; turn right as soon as you
leave the railway station, walk past the taxi rank (which often has no taxis;
don't panic) so that you have Burger King on your left, and keep walking
straight until you see Sam's Bar ahead of you; it's on the corner of Mill

Iniaes: Sure, I can accept all forms of payment.
