This was reasonably busy for a Tuesday night, with all ages represented from students to pensioners.
The decor matches the clientèle, a mixture of old and new with big sturdy tables, old leather chesterfield-esque couches, trendy lighting, pop art and the odd plant. We weren’t too keen on the music, a bit cheesy e.g. Sweet Home Alabama, though that was one of the better tunes.
Two casks, both very safe bets, Caledonian Deuchars and Harviestoun Bitter & Twisted. Keg: Red Stripe, Tennent’s Lager, Staropramen, Hoegaarden, Innis & Gunn, Caledonia Best, Guinness, Estrella Damm, Heverlee and Addlestone Cloudy cider.
It was £4.20 per pint. I think we were all on B&T.
Westy, what was the crazy cocktail with a whole egg in it? I thought I wrote it down, but no.
My fish and chips were good, but the chips portions were a bit measly with sneaky greaseproof paper placement making it look like there were actually more. Then again, I never need all those chips, they were doing me a favour. It was quite pricy though, the minimum price for a main being £11, and average £13.50, barely cheaper than the Scran & Scallie! Russ and Doug took umbrage at the prices, particularly as we were so close to the Stockbridge Tap on £6 burger night (we have a schedule to keep though, and permission to go back was denied). They went off in the huff to the next pub early.
Live sports. Live music on Sunday nights at least, perhaps more often?
