The Auctioneers: for families, friends and funsters

What parent would not be tempted by the half-dozen booths down the side of this spacious family-friendly bar, each with its own TV screen, where the kids can switch onto CBeebies while the grown-ups tuck into the extensive pub-classic menu? If those people feel comfortable at The Auctioneers, so too do the Friday and Saturday-night party crowd enjoying the DJ's floor-fillers. With its two shimmering chandeliers, two Sky boxes, separate mezzanine level and ample comfy seating, this bar does a great job of keeping everyone on side, from Tuesday-night poker players to hen parties and leaving dos.
