This place has atmosphere there is no doubt about it. The theme is sort of Australian/South African/Rugby. I know thatís a little vague but thatís how it feels. The pub itself is large and spacious and has a solid wooden feel. There is table football and pool. Plenty of tvís as well as a projector for bigger matches. They offer a ladies night and a pub quiz with prizes to boot. There is a narrow area outside which you can sit at but itís not advised in the summer as itís too hot. There is no happy hour and prices are higher than most of the competition. They also charge for service. They do however give out complimentary food from 6-7pm. Max the manager is always about and is a cheery sort. If you miss western bars and your In the Nanjing East road area give the monkey a visit. Say hello to Gordon the bouncer also who happens to be a legend of Taipei.
