English/Irish bar with the standard kind of dire tap selection you tend to find in Naples, of course featuring a couple of high ABV brown paper bag strong lagers. No bottles. On the bright side, they made a really decent burger. Service was overly helpful to the point of absurdity with 3 staff hovering over the table helping with translations of the menu and generally trying too hard. Still, good on them for trying to be helpful, donít go out of your way here for the beer, but recommended if you want a break from pizza and pasta :)

Nice wooden pub in the heart of the Vomero district, near the underground station in Piazza Vanvitelli; the area is very nice and a favorite choice for Neapolitans in the weekends. Blackwood Pub serves a lovely choice of panini, salads and dishes (even a very good risotto made with weizen beer). Selection of beers is not that big but presents unusual gems (Ellezelleoise for example); best choice is bottles, on tap they have nothing truly special, stuff from the Timmermans / John Martin range. Anyway this is the best pub I have found in town so far; open also for lunch.
