Review from the old site…
Do you remember Whistle Binkies when it was a small, sweaty and dirty late night basement bar, and crammed with punters looking for somewhere to have more beer?

Most of customers probably don’t remember much through the drunken heaving haze – but despite all that a good night was sometimes to be had.
Well now all that has changed! Whistle Binkies is now a venue in its own right – you will even get a receipt for your £3 entry fee (gone are the days when the bouncers just pocketed your entry fee!)

The place is now twice as big and so a lot more spacious – It looks like they’ve knocked into the basement next door. The place has had a complete makeover and I have to say that it looks, well……..good.

The sub-basement snugs are still there – I didn’t get much of a chance to fully check them out last Friday night, but there were people in there and they seemed to be enjoying themselves, so I guess that they are good as well. There is now a proper (although small ) dancefloor at the far end of the bar, just in front of the stage.

There is still live music 7 nights a week – seems like it is still a venue for small local bands. The toilets have also had a makeover and are a lot cleaner. Unfortunately the cost of a drink seems to have gone up, to pay for it all – but not too much from what I remember the cost of a pint was about £2.80 (correct me if I’m wrong).

Pay a visit – you’ll be surprised..
