Visited on Friday 22nd Jan 2016. Across the rode from Central station this is a rough looking but traditional pub. Beer range wasn’t great but well kept. Service OK.
Pretty busy when I arrived.
Not a beer destination but handy for a quick beer at Central station.
Cheap, run down place. Good value but dindgy looking & usually very, very busy - at night anyway. All the usual suspects when it comes to bottles, not sure about on-tap. Okay place for a quick one when you have half an hour to waste, just don’t expect a seat.
Downmarket bar opposite side entrance to Central Station. Either very noisy or deadly quiet depending on time you visit. Has 4 interesting real ales on tap but they are sometimes not well cared for. Worth a visit if you are passing through Central Station.
I was there on a Sunday evening and the place was almost empty. Nice bartender, but young with almost no knowledge of their beers. 4 real ales (while drinking a real ale from Kelburn I found myself talking to their manager, who also were visiting the place) and some other taps with standard beers. Nothing special on bottle.
Convenient central location. I was there in the late afternoon and the bartender and locals were chatty, but I’ve heard this gets rough at some hours. TV’s going hurts the atmosphere, which isn’t great to begin with. The selection was fine--three or four handpumps working when I was there, mostly interesting. Worth a stop but it’s not a regular.
