I see that the Amber Lounge - one of Tarquel's favourites - has a "Lease This Pub" sign outside. My hopes that it's the end for this wretched cocktail bar and a return to some form of pub normality were tempered by a notice that it's only shut for a refurb. Bring back the old two-storey Ye Deva I say ... though not so sure about the Greenalls.

Just for completeness sake, Amber Lounge re-opened a few weeks back. Still keg and looks exactly the same as before which should delight the Beer Project boys. The return of the Ye Olde Deva remains on hold.

Star Inns (owners of Vic and Saddle) have contractors in to do another refit to Amber Lounge (ex Deva). Been closed a long while now. Spoke to a workman there. He didn't seem to know much but reckoned it wouldn't continue as a cocktail emporium. Lots of people fed up with blond, citrussy beers. Time for an exclusively mild, brown ale and porter bar?

Re-opened. Same name. Looks same inside too except it sells cask - currently a lone handpump offering Theakstons Lightfoot. The cask won't last as it will prove as popular as a salad bar at Butlins.

As predicted, back to keg.

Now renamed the Vault and looking exactly as before apart from the smashed front window being replaced.
