Drouthy Neebors used to be a dingy but lovable place, full of character, with lots of nooks and crannies and real ales. These days it’s relatively well presented sports bar with cheap beer and live football. The name’s the same, but it’s a very different pub now.
It’s similarly decorated to the last Belhaven Pubs joint we were in, with exposed stonework, neutral shades, leather seats. It was fairly quiet, just a few gents in their 40s or 50s in to watch the football on a Saturday afternoon.
Pub 3 of 15 on our pre-Christmas bender.
No sign of real ale, but no doubt Pat will correct me! If there was a cask tap, it wasn’t on on this occasion. My notes only have the following kegs: Tennent’s Lager (5 taps!), Innis and Gunn Lager, Guinness, Belhaven Best, Carling, Stella Artois and Strongbow.
It was £12.82 for 4 pints and 2 halves. That’s only £2.56 per pint, one of the cheapest pints in town so far, albeit not “real ale”.
I didn’t see anything other than crisps and nuts.
3 TVs with football on.
