Right down at the bottom of Broughton Street at the roundabout, this place has good, well kept beer, helpful staff, a nice horseshoe bar and general woodenness. It was quiet tonight, but is often a lot busier.
I forgot to write all the beers down, sorry. There was definitely Caledonian Deuchars, 80 and Golden X.P.A., Fyne Ales Jarl, Hoggleys Pump Fiction (that’s a new one on me), and I had an Elland Brewery Nettle Thrasher which I quite enjoyed. There were at least a couple of other hand-pumps too, their maximum being 10 lines. On keg: Stella Artois, Tennents, Belhaven Best, Pilsner Urquell and probably Guinness too.
Our round came out at £9.90 for 3 pints, quite respectable at £3.30 a pint.
Not much but crisps of an evening it seems. They do meals at lunch time, I’m told, and the nachos are pretty good by all accounts.
There are a few TVs and there’s usually sport on, with big crowds for big games. I get the impression it’s more of a football pub than rugby or much else, but that’s just a hunch, no basis in fact!
