Open all day
The Lass doesn't really brew its own beer anymore, though you might find one available at times. Beers on at the time were: Daleside Green Grass, plus two others.
The exterior of this corner pub is a gem, as it still has its original tiles, though the inside blends well with the rest of the Hogshead chain. The decor is all wooden, including pictures of the brewing process and local scenes.
There are four distinct drinking areas. The bar area has an open space for standing with fruit machines and the toilets are here - not good access for the disabled as narrow. The rest of the main bar area has tall barrels and stools around the brewery viewing window and a raised platform with more conventional tables and chairs. The last area off the main bar and straight ahead of the main entrance, has round tables and stools, with some chairs. This is a snug of sorts with a fireplace, but no fire. Not far from Oxford Road railway station.
Food is served Monday-Friday 11am-6.30pm; Saturday & Sunday 12noon-5pm. Prices are reasonable, but not as good as Wetherspoons.
A friendly pub, though populated by students during term time.
