Visited: Tuesday 8 March by JC
I was sitting in this pub drinking a pint of Guinness that I’d bought for an amazing £3.10 when the power went out entirely. This was met with an enthusiastic ‘WHEY’ from the pub’s regulars, a lot of whom were Irish and who were all totally unwilling to let a little thing like a total lack of electricity get in their way of a good time.
The woman behind the bar immediately sprang into action, by making an industrial quantity of sandwiches for the customers, because why not? At least she did something: my usual reaction to a power cut is to go immediately to the pub, so experiencing a power cut in a pub left me reeling and not knowing what to do.
We really can’t fault the friendly service, or the atmosphere, and especially not the price. It was busy on a wet Tuesday night, with plenty of Irish regulars, and most of the others probably live in the same postcode, but there were a few people who seemed to be from further afield, no doubt tempted by the aforementioned service and value.
Firmly in the category of great place to watch sport, or for a cheap and friendly pint. If you’re looking for somewhere to try some new craft beers, or you’re trying to impress someone on a first date, this might not be the place for you. Unless they like cheap Guinness.
Do they do food? If you tamper with the fusebox so the power goes out you might get some free sandwiches.
Are they in the 21st Century? Minimum spend of a tenner on card.
Are there dogs? There was a big Old English Sheepdog roaming around.
I want to smoke: On the street outside.
TVs? Big screens everywhere, showing all of the sports.
