Black Cat9 Winslade Way
See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
Former Young's house, a 1960s build which is part of and just on the edge of a shopping centre and market area. The pub has a long bar, recently refurbished and fully carpeted, spread on two levels with upper level being primarily a restaurant area. Was the only Young's pub to have a cellar above the pub so the beer has to be issued through special gravity-controlled pumps to prevent flooding every time a pint is poured. 8 handpumps on the counter in 2 banks of 4, but usually only 2 pumps are in use at any one time. Re-named the Black Cat in Spring 2015.
